Horizon Hospitality plans for growth and expansion after a record-breaking 2013
Horizon Hospitality, a hospitality industry employment search firm that provides a variety of recruitment services to restaurants, private clubs, hotels, and resorts across the nation, is proud to report a 41% increase in revenue for 2013?the best end-of-year result in the company’s 15-year history.
Over the course of 2013, Horizon Hospitality has gained the attention of numerous industries that are seeking to secure highly-talented, service-oriented hospitality industry professionals. The company has also grown its business from a purely domestic base to one that includes many international interests. Horizon Hospitality expects the international segment to continue to show growth and expansion in the coming year.
“This is a great example of the results that can be achieved by taking some risks and thinking outside the box,” said Scott Samuels, President and Founder of Horizon Hospitality. “For the past 15 years, we’ve operated like a typical direct-hire search firm, where search consultants both sell and recruit. However, in 2013, we created a number of efficiencies in our internal structure that changed how we conduct business with our clients and candidates. In addition, we made a strategic decision to separate out the sales and recruiting functions for the company, allowing us to service our clients more efficiently. The results that Horizon Hospitality experienced over the year were nothing short of dramatic.”
Going forward into the New Year, Horizon Hospitality plans to capitalize on a tremendous opportunity to expand business into various segments of the domestic and international hospitality industries. In 2014, the company is also expected to expand their search team and support staff by 40% and move their corporate headquarters to a larger facility to accommodate the growth.
