TalentServed, an industry-leading hospitality executive recruitment firm, signifies its interest in deepening its roots in the Western US, with its most recent hire, Cathy Cooney, a high-touch, highly visible figure in the Colorado market. As genuine connections beyond social profiles become more valuable to hospitality companies seeking effective hires, TalentServed is ready to deliver the right talent to sustain and grow prominent restaurant brands across the country in 2020 and beyond.
Based in Denver, Cathy brings more than 20 years of experience and a deep network in the hospitality industry.
