Management Support Business in Hampton
HAMPTON, Ga. — Patrice & Associates, the nation’s preeminent hospitality recruiting company, announced today its new Atlanta area office. Opening in Hampton, the new office will meet the growing management needs of restaurants and other related hospitality businesses throughout the region.
Local resident Marcell Ausborn, who has more than 20 years of experience in human resources (HR) management for both government agencies and private sector businesses, launches the Patrice & Associates operations along with the support of the Patrice & Associates home office in Dunkirk, Md.
“My goal is to simplify the complexities of the hiring process to make it smoother for all parties,” said Ausborn. “Understanding our clients’ needs is crucial to effectively communicate with and hire the right candidates.”
Ausborn’s professional background, which includes leading large HR organizations, managing corporate succession planning, leadership development and benefit programs, makes him a key addition to the Patrice & Associates family, and a valuable asset to the greater Hampton community.
“It is no secret that South Atlanta and Hampton residents, local professionals and visitors to town love to eat meals out. The hospitality scene in the area is bustling, and our businesses dishing out great eats can really use a helping hand to find the right people to fill management positions with talented individuals,” said Ausborn. “At the same time, there is a fantastic pool of management-level talent right here in our backyard. We’re providing a bridge to bring hospitality businesses the right people for their open management jobs. We’re helping alleviate the stress and anxiety that both businesses and individuals can feel during this process”
Patrice Rice, president and founder of Patrice & Associates, began the hospitality management recruiting company more than twenty years ago out of her basement. She recently launched a growth initiative for the company, seeking to expand by opening franchised Patrice & Associates offices. Now one of the largest privately held search firms in the country, Patrice & Associates fills positions for thousands of U.S. restaurants (currently filling more than 600 positions) and guides thousands of management candidates to new job opportunities.
“We are excited to be growing with talented people such as Marcell joining the Patrice & Associates family,” said Rice. “Marcell is exactly the type of trusted partner Atlanta hospitality businesses need to support their management hiring needs.”
The $625 billion hospitality industry, employing more than 12 million people in the United States, has proven resistant to the recent forces of the recession. Rice began franchising her hospitality industry recruiting business three years ago in the midst of the Great Recession. It has continued to grow rapidly with more than 40 regional franchise offices spread across the entire nation.
