Nationwide Leader in Executive Search and Recruiting for the Hospitality Industry.

Horizon Hospitality continues to maintain its reputation as the most highly respected, results-oriented search firm for restaurants, private clubs, hotels, resorts and hospitality-related industries in the United States.

Founded in 1998 by Scott A. Samuels, Horizon Hospitality is backed by collective industry experience of 200+ years. This translates into an in-depth understanding of the management and human resource needs that are unique to the industries we serve.

We leverage our extensive proprietary database of over 245,000 hospitality professionals and employ innovative sourcing tools and techniques. Our team members are hospitality experts and we understand firsthand the importance, impact and cost of every hiring decision.

At Horizon Hospitality, our job is to make this process simpler, faster and more cost-effective for our clients.

What is the Right Search for You?

When filling hospitality management positions, how do you know the most effective way to search? Consider the critical nature of the position, how quickly it must be filled and how difficult it may be to find and attract suitable candidates. Then choose the option most likely to produce the desired results. At Horizon Hospitality, we offer a range of search solutions that can be easily customized to your requirements.

Each of these options will provide you different benefits depending on your hiring needs, timeline and budget.

Exclusive/Engaged Searches

The advantages of a Retained/Exclusive Search with Horizon Hospitality are significant. These searches take precedence over assignments due to the mutual commitments that are involved in the search process. Our team prioritizes our retained searches and assigns a dedicated team of sourcing professionals to the project.

Prior to beginning your retained search, we will establish a specific search timeline with target dates for deliverables. Initiating a retained search allows potential candidates to see how serious the hiring company is about filling the position, therefore giving credibility and legitimacy when discussing this position with potential applicants.

Exclusive/Engaged Searches are ideal when an urgent situation presents itself, or for a sensitive case in which confidentiality is paramount. We serve as your company’s directed recruiting resource and the successful completion of your search is guaranteed!

Non-Exclusive Searches

Horizon’s Contained/Non-Exclusive Search is ideal for those companies who wish to utilize other recruiting resources, in addition to ours.

Contained Searches take precedence over other assignments due to the mutual commitments that are involved in the search process. Our team prioritizes these searches, and assigns a dedicated team of sourcing professionals to the project. Much like a Retained Search, Contained Searches are ideal when an urgent situation presents itself or for a sensitive case in which confidentiality is paramount.
