Prior to joining the firm in 1986, Bruce spent almost 20 years in the hotel, food service and food distribution industries. He managed business units for Sheraton, Inter Continental Hotels, Scottsdale Memorial Hospital, and Associated Grocers.

Since joining the firm, Bruce has handled a wide variety of executive search assignments including airline CEOs; hotel groups; industrial services companies; international non-profits; university Presidents, COOs, CFOs; Corporate Chief Marketing or Sales Officers, Chief Information Officers; VP’s of Operations, Manufacturing, Human Resources and Legal Counsels. Additional fields of expertise include travel/tourism, media, clubs, high tech, consumer products, manufacturing, senior living and hotels/resorts/timeshare.

While Bruce is a “generalist” working in many industries, one-third of his assignments are in hospitality or senior living, and over half for non-profit/religious/education organizations. The latter is his way of giving back to the things he believes in.

While any good Search Consultant seeks candidates with the right experience, Bruce also strives to find people who fit the values, management style and goals of the client organization while insuring that the candidate and family, if there is one, fit the locale. He has done numerous assignments overseas where cultural and geographical focus was crucial. Having worked in three foreign countries himself and speaking English, Spanish and Portuguese, Bruce is adept at finding candidates who fit cross-culturally.

In 1993, Bruce became President of the firm.
