A Strategic Alliance in Hiring Your Next Executive Chef

Thank you so much for your guidance in the hiring of our new Executive Chef.  Filling such a unique and critical position at a club of this caliber can be a very challenging project.  The ability to access your network of the top culinary professionals in the country was a tremendous benefit that we could not have accomplished on our own.  The thorough process including presentations and tastings instilled tremendous credibility with our Board of Directors and gave us great comfort in the hiring of Chef Todd Stoner.  Your experience with private clubs definitely sets you apart from others in the industry that may not understand the culture in which we operate.  Thanks again for all your help.
