The Elliot Experience

Clients seek us out for our unique business perspective, unrelenting efforts, our spirit of partnership, and the uncompromising intellect we bring to our craft.
The Elliot Philosophy

At its heart, The Elliot Group is about connecting people and changing the industries we specialize in. We strive to make an impact on the clients, candidates and enterprises we focus on, so that we can create opportunities that benefit every party involved. We accomplish this by building relationships that are genuine and allow us to form partnerships in the long-term. We believe in the power of leadership and in building formidable cultures.

Well known as industry innovators, we’ve remained relevant over thirty-five years of client service by exceeding expectations and embracing progressive thought. We do this all while maintaining our strategic vision for the businesses we collaborate with.

We proudly exist on the cutting-edge of the hospitality, service and retail industries, boasting an extraordinary range of knowledge that our clients can rely on.

Our demonstrated track record of success — evidenced by our thriving network of recommendations and referrals — continues to allow us to expand our horizons.

The Elliot Group recognizes that individual growth helps foster business creativity and reap quantifiable rewards. To that end — and since our inception — we have worked on the forefront of event development, producing extraordinary, invitation-only events that support educational and aspirational initiatives within the industries we specialize in.

With a global outlook supported by Elliot's best in-class practices, we have had the privilege to break bread and earn the respect of all those we interact with.
