A Strategic Alliance in Hiring Your Next Executive Chef

It was such a pleasure working with David Meyers to place an Executive Chef at Belle Haven Country Club.  His professional experience as an Executive Chef and General Manager of Country Clubs has given him a unique perspective of what it takes to be successful as an Executive Chef in the private club environment.  With the placement of our Executive Chef we have significantly improved food and presentation quality, increased revenues from $2.2M to $4.3M and improved food costs by 4 points.  David is without a doubt a leader in the hospitality industry as one of the most professional and effective recruiter in our industry.  David has been a great friend and mentor to me and I would recommend anyone seeking a new culinary/food and beverage professional for their organization use David Meyers for their search.
