Hello, I'm Eric Johnson - a devoted Servant Leader, Strategist, and Team Builder. With over 20 years of experience in hospitality management, I have honed my skills as a recruitment specialist. My ultimate goal is to assemble exceptional teams that consistently deliver extraordinary experiences.

Now, as an Executive Hospitality Recruiter at Gecko Hospitality, I bring my extensive knowledge and expertise in the field of hospitality recruitment. I specialize in connecting talented professionals with exciting opportunities in the New England and New York (Upstate) regions of the USA.

But let me tell you, I am truly passionate about what I do. There is nothing more rewarding than assisting hospitality professionals in achieving their career aspirations. I find inspiration in the words of golf legend Ben Hogan, who once said: "There are no shortcuts in the quest for perfection." These wise words resonate with me. That's why I work hard to connect clients and candidates with the perfect opportunity!

Before joining Gecko Hospitality, I had the privilege of serving the private club industry for 20+ years. I held roles such as Club Manager at the Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford, NY, and General Manager and Chief Operating Officer at the Skaneateles Country Club in Skaneateles, NY. Originally from Michigan, I graduated from Purdue University's School of Hospitality and gained invaluable experience in various food and beverage leadership positions with KemperSports Management in Chicago, Maryland, and Colorado. In 2021, I received the esteemed Certified Club Manager (CCM) distinction.

My journey in hospitality began as a caddy during high school and college at the Dunes Club in New Buffalo, MI along with cooking, bartending, and serving in college. This experience truly shaped my path to success. Now, I reside in Western New York with my wife and three children. When I'm not working, you'll find me indulging in my passions for reading, golfing, history, golf literature, and exploring the great outdoors.

If you're a seasoned hospitality professional seeking new and exciting opportunity, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are always on the lookout for talented individuals who are ready to make a positive change in their careers. Connect with me today to learn more about the world of luxury hospitality. Let's embark on this journey together!
