THE PEOPLE SOLUTION

RECRUITMENT.

North America’s Trusted Hospitality
Recruiters & Industry Experts

We take the work out of recruiting.

 

I started Gecko Hospitality because I knew there was a better way to make connections between quality candidates and the businesses who need them. Today, our recruiters are the ‘best of the best’ — they’ve all worked in the industry, understand what it takes to succeed, and
most importantly, have walked in your shoes.”

Robert Krzak,

President, Gecko Hospitality

We do things differently.

Our secret sauce is how well we understand the hospitality industry. That gives us an edge when it comes to placing committed professionals in industry-specific roles.

Gecko’s help in finding a General Manager
for our historic inn was invaluable. Their
persistence to provide qualified candidates
was amazing. I am delighted with their
guidance and knowledge!”

Our Approach

Gecko Hospitality is changing the way hospitality businesses find their best talent. Our team of insiders and experts helps managers and brands across the country
find you the next best hire.

Our seven-step process gives you confidence that all candidates we present to you are not only the right fit for the role, but will also be a valuable member of the team.

And we do so on your timeline as we know how a vacant spot can impact your bottom line.

 

 

I was skeptical because the market where we wanted the General Manager is remote and trying to find solid talent in remote markets is increasingly difficult today. Gecko met that challenge immediately and provided us with qualified candidates. 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. Gecko Hospitality is truly a great resource for finding talent quickly. They provide that niche in the hospitality industry, and we will certainly use them again.”
