Hospitality Recruiting and Executive Search

We are Bristol Associates, a boutique executive search firm. Founded in 1967, our organization has a long history in Hospitality recruitment. Our experienced Hospitality recruiters use comprehensive industry knowledge, an extensive network, and an ever-expanding database to successfully place exceptional talent with industry-leading companies. Our contacts and connections throughout the Hospitality industry are vast, and we value and foster those relationships with great care. Bristol is regarded as one of the top Hospitality executive search firms in the country and has an excellent track record working with a wide range of clients nationally and internationally.

We have conducted executive searches for an array of Hospitality sectors. These include Casino Gaming; Facility and Concession; Hotel and Resort; Restaurant and Foodservice; and Travel, Tourism, and Attraction. Over our agency’s 55-plus years of history, our Hospitality recruiters have had experience recruiting executives across all functions and verticals. Our reputation and experience have helped us form connections with remarkable talent.

Each search is unique. The first step involves an in-depth consultation with one of our Hospitality executive recruiters. The recruiter will take the time to understand your business goals, culture, and job requirements in detail. We will then search for and select the best candidates for your company. Our strategy is mindfully tailored based on each search’s needs. We strive to find the best fit for our client companies as well as our candidates.

The retained search service we offer includes sourcing, screening, qualified candidate submissions, interview scheduling, and negotiating employment and compensation packages of selected finalists. At Bristol Associates, we are determined to make the recruitment process efficient, manageable, and successful for our clients.

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. For a fair rate, we will provide customized compensation information, à la carte to our main retained search services. The salary data we provide is always anonymous, in that it is tied to job titles and not executive’s names.
