TalentServed Hires Recruiting Manager for Mid-Atlantic



ATLANTA (June 27, 2017) – TalentServed, an industry-leading hospitality recruitment firm, sets its sights on growing the restaurant scene across the mid-Atlantic with the very best talent. That’s why it recently hired Kendra Martin as its first Recruiting Manager for the region.

Based in Charlotte, N.C., Kendra is a seasoned talent acquisition manager with nearly two decades of experience working within the corporate restaurant and family attraction industries including such prominent companies as Disney World, Darden Restaurants and Main Event Entertainment from Florida to Texas. From serving tables early on in her career to most recently serving as Fogo de Chão’s first official Talent Acquisition Manager, Kendra understands the nature and needs of the restaurant industry.

“I’m honored to become a part of such a reputable firm for our industry,” said Kendra. “Prior to joining TalentServed, I engaged with the team to source top talent for my previous company. Never pushy and dedicated to quality over quantity, it was always a pleasure to work with the team,” Kendra continued. “I intend to embrace this same commitment and deliver the highest-quality hires for our mid-Atlantic clients.”

Skilled in recruitment strategy and the best practices of human resources, Kendra believes in creating mutually beneficial matches between employers and employees alike. As a member of the TalentServed team, Kendra will be responsible for delivering appropriate candidates for clients throughout the mid-Atlantic region.
