Robert,

This is a letter of recommendation for Gecko Hospitality. Gecko Hospitality has played a vital role in Houlihan's success over the years with its support of our management staffing and recruiting. Whether it is through open houses, career fairs, or direct staffing Gecko hospitality has always been there to provide the support that we need.

One of the areas that I feel is so important not only in the Hospitality field but in all fields is customer service. The people at Gecko Hospitality are what I like to consider 'Leaders in our Industry.' They truly understand what it takes to get the job done, but do it in a professional yet personable manner.

Thank-you very much for many years of partnership and success and I look forward to many more years of continual success and friendship.
