Cypress Hospitality Group: The Beginnings of a Management Recruiter

You can imagine that over Geordy's many years of owning and operating different hospitality businesses he encountered the frequent challenges of properly staffing his management teams. As Geordy continued to hone his skills, he noticed that other hospitality businesses were struggling with this common issue: management staffing. From this realization came his new passion. Geordy made it his mission to create a company that could provide services to locate and recruit the most qualified and experienced hospitality professionals to fill executive management positions in hotels, resorts and restaurants across the nation.
