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 was there with me every step of the way. Their personal touch and lightning fast response times made Bristol Associates stand out from some other firms whose approach felt much more like commodity trading than talent placement.”

Eric Pearson

President/CEO, Valley Forge Casino Resort

“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!”
