Chris Kauffman, Director of Talent & Recruiting

Chris has been one of America’s top restaurant and hospitality recruiters since 1981 and we are proud to partner with him to help our clients find the best talent for the job. Chris knows the business, having been an operator with pioneer companies like Steak & Ale / Bennigan’s, The Magic Pan, Red Lobster and Hyatt Hotels. One of the keys to his success has been his extensive/exhaustive Rolodex [If you were born before 1990 – Wikipedia says: A Rolodex is a rotating file device used to store business contact information. Its name is a portmanteau of the words rolling and index]. Chris maintains deep relationships with industry professionals around the country and has an uncanny ability to quickly find the right talent for his clients. While Chris Kauffman & Co. is an independent firm, Blue Orbit has trusted Chris and his team with our recruiting needs for over 13 years.
