“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
Larry was my main point of contact through the recruitment process and was very thorough in verifying my qualifications and experience, and adequately describing the opportunity.
Mark Boekenheide, AIA, LEED AP, Managing Partner, BBG-BBGM
Larry has provided first class service to our company on many occassions. His deep knowledge of the market and key individuals, his understanding of our culture and our company projects means he’s provided excellent candidates and has helped us recruit top performers at senior levels of our organization. I highly recommend Larry’s services.
Mr. Olivier Poirot, CEO, Accor North America
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.
Bill Upshaw, President Lodging and Residential, CSM Lodging
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.
