As an experienced hotel developer, operator and owner, I recently took over a property in a new city and needed to staff it with a high quality, sales oriented General Manager on very short notice.  This was not an easy request.   However, having previously worked with her in a major market hotel management position, I contacted Dossandra Lazar at Gecko Hospitality to handle the search for me.  Based on the criteria for the position, Dossandra was able to present several talented candidates for me to select from.  Gecko assisted in the entire hiring process from pre-screening, background checks and references.  With the high caliber of candidates she presented to me, I was able to hire an outstanding General Manager for our new property.  I will most certainly use and wholeheartedly recommend Dossandra Lazar and Gecko for any future hospitality recruitment needs.
