Brings Task Force and Executive Search Together

ATLANTA, GA – April 26, 2016– Joel Carver, President and CEO of Atlanta based Carver Hotel Group, the hospitality infrastructure powerhouse, and Peggy Olson, President of St. Paul, MN based Olson HR Solutions, have announced the creation Carver-Olson Hospitality Search, which will function as a subsidiary of Carver Hotel Group. This joint venture will merge the hospitality faced executive search function of Olson into the Carver family of brands bringing all hospitality search and task force support under one umbrella; and providing a one stop shopping environment for both CHG and OHR hospitality clients.

This merger will effectively allow for a hotel, management company or ownership group to make one phone call to schedule a Task Force Consultant, as well as launch the executive search process for a permanent replacement. The combined databases of Carver and Olson will create one of the largest hospitality networks in the market today, encompassing over 20,000 hospitality professionals throughout North America.

Peggy Olson, President of OHR will assume the position of CHG Vice President, and Managing Director of the Carver-Olson division. Joel Carver will continue in the role of President and Chief Executive Officer. As part of the integration process, all hospitality search teams and functions will be migrated into CHG’s recently designed and implemented, industry leading support system, BIB. This merger will create a recruiting network of over 20,000 top-talent hospitality professionals.

Key benefits of BIB include:

  • The client experience is enhanced through real-time matching of specific needs to available consultants or candidates.
  • The candidate experience is enhanced through the portal, which allows candidates to self-manage their profile updates, resumes and availability calendars, moving interview scheduling to new heights

“Simply put, no other group in North America will be able to present more well qualified candidates, both for Task Force and Permanent Assignments faster,” said CEO Joel Carver. “This addition is an integral part of our strategic goal to be the gold standard for human capital/infrastructure companies.” After the completion of the merger, May 1, 2016, the executive offices will be in Atlanta, GA with regional offices in Chicago, IL, Colorado Springs, CO and Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN. Additional regional recruiting offices are planned for Q4 2016 and throughout 2017.
