A hotel company contracted T. A. Davis & Associates to find a very special individual to fill the President's position. They outlined an extremely narrow profile. They had worked with ten search firms and had completed an exhaustive search of their own over a six month period without success. T. A. Davis & Associates successfully completed the search within forty-five days.
A restaurant company had us conduct a search for a Corporate Controller. Two years later, that individual was promoted and we were called upon to find his replacement. We recruited a new Controller, and he became our twelfth successful placement with this company.
A hotel company with whom we have placed over forty corporate and property level managers said, "All of the Resident Managers you have placed with us have gone on to become General Managers for us!" The compliment was accompanied by three more Resident Manager search assignments.
