Steve Kratz -  Gecko Hospitality Recruiter Of The Month

October 2015

Gecko Hospitality Recruiter Steve Kratz is awarded the Recruiter Of The Month for the month of October 2015!

Steve spent the bulk of his career developing and then operating the Jose Ambler Inn in Montgomeryville, PA. Later, the 14 acre country estate became a 15 room Bed and Breakfast. Later renovations and expansions resulted in a luxurious 52 room Country Inn with Fine Dining, Weddings and Banquets. Steve enjoyed 5 years as Manager and General Manager for Macaroni Grill. His experience and operating his own location as well as his tenure with the Brinker Organization makes him distinctly qualified to help anyone find their niche in this wonderful business!

“This is the second month in a row that Steve has produced extremely high sales. After receiving an emergency call from Brinker for GM candidates in the Colorado Springs market, he jumped right on it and got 2 high potential GM candidates hired. He was also able to place a District Manager with a new client, Café Rio, establishing Gecko Hospitality as a key resource for their future Colorado growth. He maintains regular contact with his clients through periodic informative e-mails. These inevitably result in new job orders that keep him and Recruiter Assistant Matt Orlow very busy. Steve also loves working with and splitting candidates with other partners, he knows this is an integral part of our business and looks forward to those interactions. I wouldn’t be having the success my office has had without Steve!” Proudly states Franchise Partner Marty Tarabar, CPC.

Steve's wife, Tracy, is also a restaurant profession. He has a daughter Nicole, and 2 stepsons Robert and Joseph. Steve currently resides in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Steve is a big sports fan. His favorite hobbies are golfing and reading.
