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.

    He took his time to get to know me and really ensure that I was what he was looking for. He ensured that I had information about the hiring company to ensure it was something I felt I wanted to pursue. Chris also gave me some helpful tips and tricks in his emails about the interview process, you could tell that he was doing everything on his end to help you, it all just came down to how well you executed on your end.
