Featured Clients and Candidates

“Bristol Associates was recommended to us by a friend and colleague at the casino we oversee. We reached out to a couple other firms, but Bristol was by far the most responsive and professional company we spoke with. From the first contact, they were always available to us whenever needed. They sent us resumes from many qualified candidates and then helped us through each step to evaluate those choices and finally arrive at the best person to fit our needs. They made the process go so much smoother than it could have. We had to rely on their experience and knowledge several times for even small things that we were not equipped for. They were always willing to help.

Whether you are experienced at hiring gaming professionals or it’s your first time like it was for us, they are the search firm to work with. I would recommend Bristol Associates and Ben Farber to anyone!”
