Goodwin Recruiting was founded by Eric Goodwin in 1999. Eric is a seasoned restaurateur who had such a knack for hiring the best people that other hospitality entrepreneurs began asking him for recruiting help. He quickly realized there was a need to help hotel and restaurant companies find great people, and Goodwin Hospitality was born.
Since that time, the company has grown and expanded beyond the hospitality world and has become Goodwin Recruiting, a full-service recruiting agency for executive, financial, industrial, healthcare, professional services, and of course, hospitality.
It is Goodwin Recruiting’s commitment to making the right connections that has facilitated our consistent growth. We have never lost sight of Eric’s founding principles and his original commitment to finding the best connection for every client and candidate. We don’t just find people jobs — we help them grow their careers. We don’t just send clients applicants; we connect them with candidates that fit their business.
