Over the span of my fifty-year career, I have experienced extensive growth in many areas first hand. I started in retailing as an entry-level stock clerk and worked to the top positions. On the journey I recruited, mentored, coached, reassigned, and took pleasure in seeing many of those selected and guided excel and succeed as they were able to advance in their careers and life choices.
I determined exactly where they are best suited to utilize their abilities based on their objectives and cultural cultures.
The reputation of connecting people to the best position for them became a reality early in my career as I found that through thoughtful conversations and dialog, I had the ability to analyze situations, and career pathways, see the strengths and weaknesses and pinpoint the areas of expertise.
The connections created involve engaged leadership within an organization supported by others with abilities and a vision for future endeavors.
Successes include taking a frustrated merchandise planner and introducing them to a career as a financial vice-president and seeing a struggling assistant buyer that I realigned to a successful career in logistics.
Working with hotels as a certified event planner holding more than a hundred conferences, workshops, and seminars I learned the various roles in hospitality and what made one person more effective than another.

Duke Witte absolutely was amazing!
I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to Duke Witte for his assistance in finding me a new job in the hospitality industry. I was disgruntled with my previous job, and I was feeling very discouraged about my prospects. I had been working in the restaurant industry for many years, and I had a lot of experience and skills, but I was having a hard time finding a better opportunity.
I was contacted via LinkedIn by Duke, and thank goodness I was. Mr. Witte was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. He took the time to understand my skills and experience, and worked tirelessly to find me a job that was a good fit.
Duke was also very honest and upfront with me about the job market. He didn't sugarcoat things, but also didn't give up on me. He kept me motivated and encouraged, and never gave up on finding me a job that I would love.
I am so grateful to Duke Witte and his team for their help. I am now happily employed, and I am so happy that I was able to find a job that I love. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a job in the restaurant industry. He is a true professional, and is dedicated to helping his clients find the perfect job!
Thank you again for everything!
Working with Chris Bovio made job searching so much easier!Not only was he available and involved in my search, but also knowledgeable regarding the position. Chris used his industry experience and recruiting network to find the best position for me and my skill set. My only regret is that my new job is so perfect for me that I won’t need to use Chris or Patrice & Associates later.
Michael Greig was absolutely fantastic in every way!
He gave me options and suggestions & eventually found a great for me. Communication was easy and he went above & beyond. Also, he seems like an all around good dude. Thanks again Michael. Solid work out there. You’re hired :)
Bryan Curtis was fantastic to work with!
Bryan was very on top of things throughout my recruiting process to the engineering firm I accepted my position with. I responded to his LinkedIn posting and heard back from him within 24 hours. He continually spoke with me throughout the process checking in regularly and answering all my questions. Bryan was instrumental in helping me find a great job.
Frank Rondeau was a really big help!When it came to helping me find my new job, he knocked it out of the park! He was very honest and thorough throughout the entire process. We had multiple conversations along the way and he always checked in after interviews. Frank was amazing to work with, and I'm super excited to start my new journey thanks to him.
