Who we are
HOTELITY is a specialized executive search agency based in Slovakia serving the hospitality and tourism industries exclusively.
We are focused on identifying, selecting and recruiting the “elite” candidates for all key positions in central Europe and internationally.
Our strengths are first hand experience in the hospitality industry and network of relationships built over time with many of the most successful hotel operators around the world.
We believe, that thanks to our passion for hospitality, professional experience and wide ranging network of local and international contacts, we are the right choice for you.
Why Executive Search?
- We cooperate with candidates and talents who have achieved proven results in various managerial positions in hotel and tourism industries in Central and Eastern Europe.
- You need to maximize your company’s performance as quickly as possible. Every day without the right person in the right place can cost a lot of money; every day with an incorrectly selected person can cause you a lot of damage.
- Top managers are not actively looking for new opportunities on the market.
- You are very busy to do the entire selection process yourself.
- You do not want to show your competitors your current weakness by publishing an open key management position.
