“I highly recommend Larry Mendez and Bannerot Partners. In the search work that Larry did for us, he was able to identify high caliber candidates in a relatively short time span. We were pleased with the professionalism of the process and the final outcome. “
Bob Joyce, EVP Human Resources, Extended Stay America
In early 2013, we engaged Larry Mendez at Bannerot Partners to conduct a search for a chief operating officer for our company, Supertel Hospitality – a publicly traded REIT located in Omaha, Nebraska.
