Executive Search

Sourcing Executives takes a team of highly trained recruiters with the network and know how to find that needle in the haystack.

For over 30 years, our team of experts have helped many of the most successful hospitality and retail organizations build their senior leadership teams nationally, regionally and locally for a wide variety of needs. We know it is not enough to simply identify candidates with the right experience. Our goal is to deliver great leaders. We assess candidates based on past experiences, future potential and the cultural attributes most important to your organization. And, we do it discretely.

We know the market and have the insights. We go beyond networking with respected industry contacts to source great talent. As a result of our considerable experience, we can bring deep perspective on the competitive landscape, ideal backgrounds and sources of candidates, compensation requirements and relocation challenges.
Coupled with our team approach, this results in a search strategy that yields quicker, more positive outcomes.

We share your sense of urgency to get it done quickly, thoroughly and effectively. Consider retaining Patrice & Associates to fill your key senior positions. Also consider partnering with us to staff full locations or departments for a planned new opening, expansion, acquisition or rebuild.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • Darryl Jackson has been amazing during this whole process!

    He has kept in contact with me from the very beginning! He gave the company I interviewed for a good vision of myself and they are talking highly of me! Without Darryl, I would still be jobless! He has called me on several occasions to check in and show me that he is reaching out to the next people he needs to reach out to! I could not have asked for a better supporter to help me in my job search! His business is going to excel if he continues to work this hard with his clients like he did with me and I honestly cannot thank him enough!
    Thanks,

  • Matt gave excellent information that helped me put my best foot forward. 

    I had the pleasure of working with Matt Lopez.  We have been on this journey with a few companies. I always felt well represented and excited about the opportunities I was presented. His timely follow up is one of the many attributes that stood out the most.  It is hard to find professionalism at this level.  He gave consistent feedback, and pep talks before my interviews.  It's quite a process when dealing with second and third interviews, and Matt constantly provided great energy and enthusiasm.  He also made sure I was always prepared in having all the ammunition I needed.  Whether footnotes, information about the brand, or providing key examples to respond during the interviews.  With this pandemic, it's been difficult.  Many companies are hesitant with the direction they are moving.  Even with my vast experience, Matt is my most valuable asset.  I have several Colleagues and I would highly recommend his service without a doubt.
