  2. 2. About Us Since 2000, Gecko Hospitality has pioneered the hospitality recruiting industry with the dedicated Franchise Partners and Recruiters throughout the United States. The value Gecko Hospitality provides to its Clientele is measured on the advanced networking and technology skills our Professional Recruiters possess in identifying qualified restaurant and hospitality professionals. Our national network consists of 37 regional offices driven to meet the needs of the hospitality industry. In addition, Gecko Hospitality offers the largest selection of hospitality jobs, restaurant jobs, hotel jobs, and resort and club management jobs online. Our hospitality-exclusive team covers all 50 states and Canada with over 80 Franchise Partners and Recruiters. Gecko Hospitality was founded on providing the finest restaurant and hospitality jobs nationwide to the highest performing candidates. More importantly, our Franchise Partners and Recruiters began their careers in restaurants and hospitality. At Gecko Hospitality, we are passionate that every member of our recruiting team be familiar with our philosophies. In the same way that we learn about people when developing relationships and friendships, we want our people to have a sense of Gecko Hospitality’s values and insight into our company’s “personality.” With this insight comes a greater understanding of how values “fit” with Gecko Hospitality’s values; why we do things the way we do and the basis for making decisions appropriate to the values. We all play a part in keeping these traditions and philosophies alive. We want every member of our recruiting team to understand that we are only as good as how each of us lives these philosophies every day, in every office. Gecko Hospitality is all about achieving results by being motivated. The key is that this motivation to achieving results comes from within. No one can motivate us, nor can we motivate anyone else. As leaders, we provide an environment where people motivate themselves to achieve mutually beneficial goals. Along with this philosophy, each team member possesses the following traits for which we are proud; honesty, integrity, desire, determination, must be a good listener, learn and respond quickly, communicate effectively, be thorough, empathic, compassionate, and most of all, have a strong work ethic to produce superior results for both our candidates and our Clients. In 2009, Gecko Hospitality added three additional services to accompany our successful direct placement recruiting solution. Management Open House, Management Career Fair and Creative Advertising were introduced to offer our clientele a choice to select what recruiting solution would fit best. Needless to say, the additional recruiting solutions were greeted with a very warm reception and have proven to be successful, cost effective products for our Client companies. At Gecko Hospitality, you certainly have.... more choices. ™

  7. 7. Testimonials I wanted to follow up with you on the candidate that you recommend for our Embassy Suites in Destin, Florida. You made everything SO easy and saved me a lot of time and searching. I will definitely be calling you again should I need another “perfect fit” at another of one of my hotels. Debi Fontenot | Regional Director of Sales and Marketing |Dimension Development, Inc. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– WOW! That’s the only way I know how to describe the Management Open House you and Gecko Hospitality produced for Buca di Beppo and Planet Hollywood. Your database of candidates is extraordinary and I appreciate all of the work that went into contacting these people we would not have seen if it wasn’t for Gecko. We value Gecko Hospitality as a recruiting partner in our efforts to find the best management personnel and look forward to a great business relationship between our two companies. Rick Cherra | Director of Recruiting | Buca di Beppo –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– I must say, this was the best Management Open House I’ve experienced in my 4 years with Brinker. Thank you both for all of your hard work and for the great candidate!! We are going to move forward with 6 candidates and have 4 more that we may move forward with! Helena L. Jackson | Field Management/Chef Recruiter | Brinker International –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– I recently worked with you and Gecko Hospitality to fill a management position within my hotel, Hilton Garden Inn. I found Gecko to be very professional and reliable in this process. I am very happy with the candidate that ended up placing, and am overall very happy with the entire experi- ence. David Glass | General Manager | Hilton Garden Inn –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Gecko Hospitality has played a vital role in Houlihan’s success over the years with its support of our management staffing and recruiting. Whether it is through open houses, career fairs, or direct staffing Gecko Hospitality has always been there to provide the support that we need. Thank you very much for many years of partnership and success and I look forward to many more years of continual success and friendship. Thuan Nguyen | Director of Recruiting | Houlihan’s Restaurants Inc. –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Two months ago, I found myself in need of several managers in Northern California; traditionally a harder area of the country to staff for most companies. So many other companies will just forward resumes in hopes that one or two manager candidates will “stick.” Gecko consistently provides well qualified, pre-screened candidates; understanding that sometimes less is more that it always needs to be quality over quantity. I have happily worked with you and your team for close to 7 years and couldn’t imagine using anyone else! Scott Barshay | Sr. Regional Recruiting Manager |Red Robin Gourmet Burgers –––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– I have dealt with Gecko Hospitality in several states across the country with great success. Through- out my interactions with your staff, they have shown great ability in understanding the profile we were looking for. Your Recruiters have fed us a constant stream of qualified individuals, giving us healthy options while staying within our candidate’s parameters.
