Jeff started his career in the Restaurant Industry passing out samples in front of Chick-fil-A at the local Mall in Ohio He never thought he would decide on a Career in the Hospitality Industry. He attended Otterbein College in Westerville, Ohio where he studied Music Education. Jeff worked in a 50's Theme Diner called "Rock-a Billy Cafe" while he was home for summer and holiday breaks. In between dancing on tables to Juke Box Music, hula-hooping, and singing obnoxious Birthday Songs, he took an interest in Restaurant Management. He has been a Manager for Lonestar Steakhouse and Saloon and was most recently a Manager for Darden Restaurants(Smokey Bones).

Jeff joined the Gecko Team in 2008. He is responsible for the Ohio and Kentucky Market.

Just like Restaurant Management, there is never a dull moment." He is very active as a Mentor with The Crohn's and Colitis Foundation's Team Challenge Program. He has completed two half Marathons with Team Challenge.

Since the onset of our partnership with Robert Krzak and his team at Gecko Hospitality we have been nothing short of elated. Their relationship-based, business culture is unmatched in the industry. Their want to understand your candidate profile, general business practices and 'get the job done' attitude is stellar.

We have had a number of great placements with Gecko Hospitality in very difficult operating markets. When given the daunting task to hire an executive- level Home Office team member, I contacted Robert and his team with the job specifications. In a matter of one week, I had a number of viable candidates to interview all possessing the requirements we were searching for. Though we were working with other sources, within four weeks it was one of the candidates that Gecko had brought to us that we hired. As I expected, their quick response, thorough screening and get it done attitude during the process was excellent.

In the future when asked to hire those typically difficult high-level executive positions Gecko will be my first and only call.

Thank you to Robert and his team for a job well done!
