Hutchinson Consulting announces new leadership and expands services

04 Jan 2018
Michael Tompkins will head up a new leadership team at Hutchinson Consulting after Bill Hutchinson announced his retirement following 25 years in hospitality recruitment.

Hutchinson is handing over the reins to partners Tompkins, Kristine Huffman and Carol Stratford.

Founded in 1993 by Hutchinson’s late wife, Lori Hutchinson, Hutchinson Consulting specialises in hotel, spa and restaurant talent recruitment.

“After 25 years of serving an industry I love, this is a bittersweet moment,” said Hutchinson.

“Michael Tompkins joined us in 2016 and has brought new levels of expertise to the business.

"While I move on to new ventures, I know Lori’s vision is being realised and I'm thrilled about the new partners and the team's ongoing growth of Hutchinson Consulting.”

Hutchinson Consulting will continue its primary focus on hospitality, wellness and spa recruiting, managed by Tompkins.

Additional recruitment services will include pre-employment testing, resume writing and executive coaching.

The firm will also offer marketing, public relations, advertising and social media services managed by Stratford.

Huffman will manage hospitality design construction consulting; resort, medical and wellness spa consulting; brand development; financial forecasting and business plan development.

“Lori and Bill Hutchinson have created a revered company, and I feel honoured to be merging the brands Michael, Carol and I have created with the Hutchinson legacy,” said Huffman.

“We're looking forward to offering leading hotels, spas and restaurants an umbrella of services to help grow brands both in the US and internationally.”
