A Few Words From Our Partners And Talents

 
As we all know well in our industry, the restaurant business is first and foremost made of people smart, passionate, devoted, honest and ambitious who care about each other and the customers. Together we take a leap in our work life and with Cynthia it was an incredible journey. I have had the great pleasure to know her for a very long time as she was the leader in charge of recruiting talents and maintaining a unique culture in my group.

I have always been impressed by her perseverance and dedication in looking out for the right individuals and personalities to match the expectations and philosophy of my restaurants. Cynthia has always been a discreet and trusted advisor and personal friend to me and my senior team. I can truly say that she has been an integral part of our distinctive community and breathes our passion in our quest for excellence and creativity. I highly recommend Cynthia as a dedicated partner to restaurant groups looking for the best profiles to fit their needs!

As I was looking into my next move within the Culinary industry, my first thought was to call Cynthia as I knew she had been following my career path since we first got introduced 7 years ago, back when I first landed in the States transitioning from Chef Robuchon to the Setai Hotel. Through her well-established Culinary network, I also knew that I would greatly improve my chances to connect with a certain inner circle of Chefs and Restaurant Groups. Today, it might just be one of the best decision I have made as I started working for one of my most admired professional in our Culinary community, Chef Daniel Boulud, as one of his Corporate Chef. Thank you for your kind and professional approach throughout this process. I strongly recommend Cynthia as a dedicated agent to candidates searching for the best restaurant and culture to fit in!

Cynthia has a gift when it comes to attracting the right people for the right job. Our business is more about retention then it is about recruiting. Cynthia helped me place many chefs with the Daniel Boulud company, many of whom have stayed and made a career and lifestyle they always dreamed of. Our profession as we know it is changing, Cynthia seems to have that pulse and I would not work with anyone else in helping me find great talent!

Cynthia is a highly experienced HR professional. Not only is she innovative in her thinking but she is also results driven and understands the importance of using tools and resources efficiently to product the best results. Most importantly, she is a warm and lovely person with a genuine desire to nurture and grow the talent of the hospitality industry.

Working for five years for Chef Daniel Boulud gave me the opportunity to represent one of the men I admire most, and also to meet some amazing professionals and human beings such as Cynthia. Always available, warm and helpful, it was a true pleasure to collaborate with Cynthia and we have developed and nurtured a true friendship since. Regretfully, life and career took us on a different path but I hope to work with Cynthia again and I am very confident that whomever in needs of her competences will be fully satisfied.

I have worked with Cynthia for many years now – as an immigration lawyer it’s always a pleasure to have a client like Cynthia who is organized, professional, knowledgeable, and cares about her employees. I was thrilled to learn that Cynthia has opened a hospitality recruitment firm as my high-end hotel and restaurant clients struggle tremendously to recruit top talent and I’m delighted to be able to connect them with someone whom I know and trust, and who I’m confident will understand their unique needs based on her impressive and extensive background in hospitality HR. I have already referred several clients to her!
