Introduction
"If you hire the wrong person, all of the fancy management techniques in the world won’t bail you out." – Red Auerbach winningest coach in the NBA

"The day we screw up the people thing it’s all over." – Herb Kelleher, founder of Southwest Airlines

"If you beat your competition to the best employees, those employees will help you beat your competition." –Mel Kleiman

As the onetime owner of three different businesses (including the largest group of Hertz Rent-a-Car franchise locations in the U.S.), my expertise is based on my personal experience as well as over 30 years of work helping companies design systems to implement successful employee hiring programs.
I have worked with hundreds of clients including many leading restaurant, retail, and franchise concerns and have delivered over 500 custom-designed presentations on these subjects.

I was awarded the National Speakers’ Association Certified Speaking Professional designation in 1999 and have written five books including the bestselling Hire Tough, Manage Easy. I am a regular contributor to Restaurant Hospitality, Multiunit Franchise, and Convenience Store Decisions magazines and serve as a board member for both the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation and the Workforce Institute.
