Please scroll down for our  Our Replacement Policy. 

We offer two levels of partnering with us on Executive Search, exclusively for the Hotel, Hospitality, and Travel Trade industries.  We also provide a unique alternative service of day-to-day Talent Acquisition Consulting.  

 Talent Acquisition  Consulting

A complete alternative

Ideal for an independent or franchise hotel, small hotel group, or Owner.

A unique offering where we do not search - no search fee, but offer clients a Talent Acquisition Consulting Service.
  • Charged at a daily flat US$ rate for a fixed number of days agreed on upfront.  For 30-days or more continuous hire, at a 30% discount from our daily flat-rate fee.
  • Most work can be achieved virtually to contain any additional costs.
  • A critical executive position arises, such as a COO, specialist VP, or unique  GM role. 

  • And the client has several recommended candidates or receives scores of great candidates from ads they placed and then discovered that they do not have the time to handle the volume.

  • Or they want us to do the advertising, not search.  


For GM, Above Property Positions, senior roles such as a Michelin Chef, or Professionals hired in unique functions such as a Hotel Historian.


  • We will talk to each candidate, assess, shortlist, interview the final candidates in-depth virtually, conduct leadership competency, personality, and character assessment, and take up references.

  • We set up final interviews with the client and helped finalize the package and hire date negotiations. 

  • We can conduct a full psychometric assessment via our in-house licensed agent if needed, in addition to our general personality and character assessment - and write a full report on two shortlisted candidates to present to the client.


We will not search but handle the whole hiring process - so our clients can get on with running their business!


  • We never try to sell a client to a candidate, nor a candidate to a job.  

  • If we owned your business, and we'd hire them, we'll market them to you.  However, if we are not 100% sure we'd hire them, we will not present them.

  • This is a far greater depth of service than most any Contingency Search firm at a lower price because you committed to us.

  • We can conduct a full Psychometric Assessment if a client wishes.

Committed Search

The most cost-effective search.
