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

“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

“In comparing similar executive search firms, Bristol Associates has a professional reputation. They work alongside the organization to find the best fit, not necessarily the most qualified. My experience has been one with many interactions. I would recommend Bristol Associates to others due to the simple fact that it really was a painless and stress-free process.”

James Stevens

Director of Human Resources, Santa Ana Star 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 access to a number of opportunities and, if you are a good fit, they will help you get in front of the hiring manager so that you can close the deal. Bristol is very responsive and communicates a realistic timeline. I like the fact that Ben is able to have frank discussions with the hiring firms about offer terms and expectations. In addition, he works to provide the hiring company with a cohesive package for a candidate.”

Greg Hinton

Chief Financial Officer, Coushatta Casino Resort
