Search Process
For over 30 years, Global Hospitality has worked to achieve and deserve its reputation for an exceptional track record of successful placements with our clients. 

How do we do it? We listen as carefully to you as we do to the candidates we interview on your behalf. Your objectives, your criteria, and your budget for a position are just the beginning. Company culture, methods of operation, working environment and other intangibles are also evaluated and added to the search portfolio. We don’t just want to make a placement. We want to bring you a candidate who will become one of your most valuable staff members and who will best promote the long-term success of your company.

Global Hospitality consultants approach each assignment with a proven search process and methodology derived from many years of experience recruiting talent for the hospitality industry.
