TalentServed Hires Director for the Mid-South


ATLANTA (September 13, 2017) – TalentServed, an industry-leading hospitality recruitment firm, is observant to the booming culinary scene in Houston and across the mid-South. That’s why it recently hired Kristine Stern as its Director of Recruiting for the region.

Based in Houston, Texas, Kristine has more than 20 years’ experience in restaurant operations and recruiting from fine dining and full-service restaurants to fast casual, multi-unit locations. Working on both the owner and operator sides of the restaurant business, she helped grow a Houston-based casual dining concept from two locations to more than 15 including sites in Mexico and Canada. From her first job in a restaurant at just 13-years-old to working in several restaurants throughout college, Kristine’s industry knowledge and restaurant recruiting capabilities are simply intuitive.

“I’m excited to be joining the TalentServed team,” said Kristine. “I’m passionate about delivering the best people to my clients, and that’s mission number one for this group. Combining my network and recruiting experience with TalentServed’s will enable us to be a powerful recruiting asset for our clients in Texas and throughout the mid-South.”

Skilled in building productive management teams, Kristine believes in pairing the applicant’s personality to the position first. As a member of the TalentServed team, Kristine will be responsible for presenting appropriate candidates for clients throughout the mid-South region.

“Kristine’s energy is contagious,” said Steve Gibson, Founder & CEO, of TalentServed. “She’s a true pro and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome her to our growing recruitment team.”
