Gecko Hospitality is proud to announce that Ben O’Neal has been chosen and awarded the Recruiter Of The Month for the month of June 2015.

Ben joined Gecko in July of 2013 and started recruiting in August and currently oversees the Alabama and Louisiana markets.

Prior to joining Gecko, Ben had a distinguished career in restaurant operations and was a Multi-Unit Supervisor for concepts such as Papa John’s. He also owned and operated 4 diversified concepts ranging from Fast Casual to High End Steak House. Although Ben was an excellent restaurant operator, his greatest asset is his ability to build relationships. Ben has used that ability to hit the ground running as a recruiter in Alabama.

“Ben had an amazing month of June, making 13 placements including 2 Market Directors, 2 Area Coaches with one client and 5 placements with different concepts. June was a tough month for my franchise after losing my Louisiana recruiter, but Ben really stepped up and helped us sail through and make June our best month of the year so far. We are very fortunate to have someone of Ben’s caliber on our Gecko Team! Way to go Ben!” Proudly sates Franchise Partner Mike Tsirelis, CPC.

In addition to his hard work and dedication, Ben always makes time to help out others and answer questions.  His communication with candidates and clients is top notch and both feel that he has their best interest in mind.  When he isn't actively recruiting for (which he does at all times of the day), he spends time with his wife Libby and son Miles. Please join me in congratulating him on such a stellar month and for many more too come! He is an amazing assist to our gecko hospitality team and wishes him only the best.
