We would like to recommend the recruiting services of Gecko Hospitality. We spoke with Joan Koelbel, and she immediately understood our mission to find a qualified General Manager. I was skeptical because the market where we wanted the General Manager is remote.

Trying to find solid talent in remote markets is increasingly difficult today. They followed the process and were ready to help. We now have a General Manager that we otherwise would have missed! We were able to secure the opening in three weeks.
