A Year in Review: Looking Back at 2023

Bristol Updates

How Executives Can Resign Gracefully

As we wrap up the year, we want to reflect on the successes that have made big impressions in 2023. Here are some of our highlights!


We placed more amazing talent in remarkable organizations.

As an executive search firm, we have continued to do what we do best. Here are some of our noteworthy placements and projects across the US:

  • President for an amusement machines supplier in the Midwest
  • Chief Operating Officer for a professional football stadium in the Southwest
  • General Manager for a brand-new attraction in the Midwest
  • VP of Marketing for a full-service casino resort in the Western US
  • Head of Maintenance and Engineering for a food manufacturer on the West Coast
  • Director of Purchasing for a gaming and entertainment destination in the Northeast
  • Head of Sales for an ingredient supplier in the Western US
  • Executive Chef for eight dining establishments on the West Coast
  • Conducted an extensive wage study for a client in the Northwest


We celebrated our President’s 20-year work anniversary.

In August, our very own Ben Farber celebrated two decades at Bristol Associates. In case you missed it, check out the 20 lessons he learned in the past 20 years here.


We upgraded (and expanded) our newsletters.

This year, we updated the look of our monthly newsletters and added new content like Recommended Reads and the Bristol Buzz. We also created The Bristol Breakroom LinkedIn newsletter, which has already gained over 2,000 subscribers!


We are donating to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Meals on Wheels.

At the beginning of each year, our employees select two charities that Bristol contributes to during the holidays. This year, we are supporting the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and Meals on Wheels with a donation for every employer inquiry form completed until the end of the 2023.


From all of us at Bristol Associates, we wish you and yours a happy holiday season!
