WOW! That's the only way I know how to describe the Management Open House you and Gecko Hospitality produced for Buca di Beppo and Planet Hollywood in San Diego and Las Vegas. I will have to admit that I was skeptical when I was told how Gecko Hospitality differed from companies I have used in the past. The professionalism of your recruiters and the attention to detail that was made to ensure quality candidates were sourced out to attend was remarkable.

Your database of candidates is extraordinary and I appreciate all of the work that went into contacting these people we would not have seen if it wasn't for Gecko. Our Divisional Vice Presidents were very impressed with the quality of the candidates and time you took to source out the candidates that did not fit our company profile. You saved us all valuable time which gave us an opportunity to spend quality time with the candidates who best suited our needs in that market.

We value Gecko Hospitality as a recruiting partner in our efforts to find the best management personnel and look forward to a great business relationship between our two companies.
