Hospitality and Leisure
This is a huge, global and intensely vibrant sector.
It encompasses Hotels, Resorts, Travel and Tourism, Private Member Clubs, Entertainment, Student Accommodation, Restaurants, Convenience Food, Pubs, Bars, Breweries, Gyms and Health Clubs, Catering, Conferencing, and Facilities Management. Our clients range from luxury, iconic 5* hotels through to high street coffee chains and everything in between, and are located everywhere from Asia to the USA. We work for independent boutiques, large international chains, private equity firms, and property development and asset management companies. Our experience covers Head of Department (HoD), Executive Committee (ExCom), and corporate Head Office recruitment.
Retained executive search is something that the Hospitality and Leisure sector has historically been quite resistant to, but we have found ways of delivering results quickly and cost-effectively, in order to meet our clients’ needs. This is borne out by the high levels of repeat business that we have found ourselves undertaking. Our team also has first-hand experience of working in the sector, and so understands the vital importance of service and quality in all things. We try to keep continually up-to-date with new openings, current F&B trends, and cutting-edge technological and revenue-generating innovations. We occasionally also undertake salary surveys of people in key gateway cities around the world, so that we can advise clients about where to pitch particular roles, and even how to approach internal restructuring challenges.
