Casino Gaming Recruiting and Executive Search

Your Casino Gaming Recruitment Specialists

We are Bristol Associates, a boutique executive search firm, founded in 1967. A major pillar of our organization is the Casino Gaming recruitment division. Our company was one of the first to specialize in this industry and has proven to be the leading casino gaming executive search practice in the country, finding top talent for numerous casino and gaming organizations. Our experienced recruiters have successfully completed hundreds of casino gaming assignments using our comprehensive industry knowledge, extensive network, and ever-expanding database. We recruit key corporate and property level executives within all casino gaming functions nationwide and globally.

In our agency’s 55-plus years of history, we have been licensed or approved as vendors to conduct business with corporate casinos, Tribal organizations, suppliers, sports betting organizations, and online and mobile gaming companies in nearly all 50 states, as well as internationally.

The retained search service Bristol offers includes sourcing, screening, submitting qualified candidates, scheduling interviews, and negotiating employment and compensation packages of selected finalists.  Each search is unique, and we provide personalized service to gain an in-depth understanding of our clients at the start of our relationship. Our strategy is mindfully tailored based on each client’s needs and culture. We strive to find the best fit for our client companies as well as our candidates. The connections we form with both our clients and candidates are valued, and we maintain these relationships with great care.

Given our firm’s industry focus and vast database of talent, we have in-depth knowledge of compensation ranges from C-suite executives to mid-level management. We regularly advise clients on current job market conditions and consult on matters of compensation including base salaries, bonus programs, commission structures, incentives, benefits, and long-term compensation. We can provide customized compensation information (wage studies) à la carte to our main retained executive search services. The salary data we provide is always anonymous, in that it is tied to job titles and not executives’ names.

Casino Gaming Executive Satisfaction Survey

Since 2000, Bristol has conducted the Annual Casino Gaming Executive Satisfaction Survey, which is designed to help the gaming industry attract, retain, and motivate its executive talent. The analysis conveys the current attitudes and preferences of casino gaming professionals, as well as how they change over the years and how they relate to overall market conditions.

Our Satisfied Clients Love to Share Their Experiences Working with Bristol Associates

“For over a decade, Bristol Associates has successfully found us key executives ranging from COO to VPs, Directors and Managers. Not only do they understand the recruitment business, but they have made a point of understanding and learning about our company – critical when considering senior level recruitment.”

Andy Green

Sr. Vice President of Human Resources, Parx Casino

“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!”

Kevin Lynch

Board Chair, Dubuque Racing Association

“Bristol Associates has been instrumental in assisting hiring several key Senior Management staffers, including CFO, GMs and PD execs, for multi property companies I have been associated with since the 1990’s. I have always been impressed with Bristol’s attention to detail and persistence when taking on an assignment. Bristol Associates takes the time necessary to understand the needs of our company regarding both the right experience level as well as the corporate culture. It has been my personal experience that they go above and beyond a normal client/agency relationship. In short, they care… and get the job done.”

Thomas Osiecki

President/COO, American Racing and Entertainment

“This was my first time using a recruiting service and I must say it was one of the best professional experiences that I’ve gone through. Overall, I would recommend Bristol Associates because of the professional way they treat their candidates. There is no pressure by them, and they work hard to find the right fit for both the company and candidate. Win, win!”
