The General Manager/COO is the largest search specialty over the 21 year history of GSI Executive Search.  We are proud of the hundreds of GM placements we have made and the client relationships we have developed which have led to repeat assignments and additional searches for other positions with these same clubs and clients.

We know how important this GM leadership role is to the overall success of the club or hospitality operation.  We approach each of these assignments as a new and different search and strive to clearly understand each client’s unique culture in our process of developing candidates.  During our recruitment process for this position, our proactive outreach and thorough review and screening of potential candidates by our whole team leads to qualified and interested candidates who fit the club culture and who have the skills, experience, and accomplishments our clients are seeking.

Throughout our firm’s years in hospitality, our team has established a track record of success based on trust, ethics, responsiveness, and the results we have produced in the placement of GM/COO’s.  These results have led to stable and successful placements that easily outlast the industry average.  We are also well known for producing these results in a timely and efficient time frame.

In our work in placing GM’s in clubs and the hospitality sector, we are also known for our follow-up work with the Boards and owners after the placement is made.  We work with our clients during the initial transition, during the first year in the position, and into their additional years of tenure.  These services include board orientations, board consulting, GM/COO evaluations, staff team building, and strategic planning.  We are dedicated to long term success for the GM/COO and the client.

We have worked with many of the top clubs and hospitality organizations throughout the US and beyond.  Our website includes a complete of clients for your review.
