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. I was familiar with Larry through his work in the hotel industry, and our Board of Directors endorsed the assignment. Larry was incredibly thorough, communicative, and effective throughout the process. In the end, we hired a very qualified candidate that fit our culture perfectly.
Mr. Kelly Walters, CEOSupertel Hospitality
“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. “

I’ve always found him to be the consummate professional. He works very hard to understand the client’s need and has an expansive network which allows him to execute against the strategy.  Larry is ethical beyond reproach and understands how to gently nudge the process forward and across the finish line.
