A graduate of Purdue University, James Bullard brings over 20 years of professional recruiting experience to Gecko's Recruiting team.
Coming out of operations, James sought out the help of Resources In Food to help him advance his career with a College Degree. While at RIF, he was given a unique opportunity to become a recruiter with a franchise group named PMA Restaurant Group owned and operated Robert Krzak. James quickly achieved success and worked his way from Recruiter to Senior Recruiter and ultimately to Director of Operations overseeing three offices and budgets of more than $800,000 in sales in Indiana and Ohio.
After leaving Resources in Food in 1999, James went to the corporate side of recruiting where he became a Regional Manager of Recruiting for Chuck E Cheese's, Director of Recruiting for Value Financial Services, Recruiting Manager for Dave and Buster's, and most recently Regional Director of Talent Acquisition for White Lodging, the second largest management company in the hotel and hospitality industry with over 20,000 rooms nationwide.
While on the corporate side, James won many accolades due to his unique ability to build relationships with his operators. Awards such as Recruiter of the Year 04', Top Gun recipient in 07', and Platinum Performance Award in 08' are just a few awards given to James.
James is excited to be back in control of the recruiting atmosphere he so loves to be a part of.
