What people are saying about Gecko Hospitality

I had the pleasure of working with Chris Shatto and Gecko Hospitality and had a great experience from beginning to end. The process went smoothly and the communication was direct and thorough. This team found exactly what I was looking for and would highly recommend their services for myself and for my hotel. Thank you Chris and Gecko Hospitality!

Aaron Engholm

It’s been great working with Gecko Hospitality. They made sure to thoroughly educate themselves on our company culture before seeking out candidates for us, and since, their communication and follow-up has been impeccable from candidate introduction to selection process scheduling. They’ve matched us with some great candidates that wouldn’t have discovered us through our own ads, and many are succeeding in their current roles. We look forward to our continuing partnership with Gecko Hospitality.

We would like to recommend Gecko Hospitality! We were opening our G58 fine dining restaurant and needed a resource to attract top management talent. We contacted Gecko Hospitality and they shared a tremendous amount of information. They gave us references on resources to help with formalizing the interview process and making valuable recommendations. We received quality candidates very quickly! We worked through the process of interviews and in a few weeks we identified our Senior Service Manager. We are very pleased with the professionalism of the Gecko Hospitality team.

Julia Li

We would like to recommend Gecko Hospitality as a excellent recruiting partner. We approached the Gecko office with the task of finding an Operating Partner to develop our new Poke Bar concept. We discussed the details with the Gecko recruiter. Their depth of knowledge in operations and the market helped in making valuable suggestions. We were very pleased that in a period of 4 weeks that we identified a candidate, extended an offer and secured the opening! We plan on calling Gecko Hospitality as we open more locations! Thank you!
