"I would be remiss if I did not thank you for the professionalism and guidance you provided to me and Mount Vernon Country Club throughout our search. With my background in golf, your astute guidance and counsel proved invaluable. Hiring an Executive Chef can be a daunting task and I knew it was going to be a challenge for me. Your involvement has ended up making me look like a genius for my membership and for that I am indebted to you. I was particularly impressed with the time and effort you put in at the early stages of the search process to learn about me, Mount Vernon Country Club, budgetary constraints and our desires for the F&B operations. Thank you again for finding our wonderful new Chef."

"Von Paulhus & Associates were great to work with in placing our Executive Chef at Indian Creek Yacht and Country Club. Bedelia was quick to respond to our call and was very thorough with understanding our needs. Her experience and vast knowledge in the hospitality industry made all the difference, not to mention her countless connections across the country. I do believe because of these facts she was able to work so quickly and produce a top quality Chef that has proven to be the perfect fit for our Club. In the future when similar needs arise they will be our first call."

"The Inn at Perry Cabin is a unique property which likes to work with people offering the same level of service that we offer our guests. I have known Bedelia both professionally and personally for four years. She is an ambassador for the hospitality industry. I have found the services she offers are without doubt the finest I have come across in my travels around the world. She is responsive to my every need and handles all the details. Bedelia makes it very straight forward for me to hire good candidates for openings that come available at The Inn at Perry Cabin, for whom she has worked since 1990. For anybody looking to use a recruitment agency I would highly recommend von Paulhus and Associates, LLC".

"Bedelia has called us many times during the past 15 years and placed a sous chef with us in 1999. We were very pleased with the quality of the candidates she presented and are happy to say that our sous chef is still with us and is doing an outstanding job.

What sets Bedelia apart from many others in the placement business is her interest in establishing a relationship with her clients. She took the time to visit us to make sure her referral was doing well ... not an easy task when she lives in South Carolina and we are in Pennsylvania. We look forward to working with her on future openings".

With warmest personal regards, I remain,"

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Bedelia Von Paulhus since 1984 and have worked with her on career placements for high level positions in each of the following locations: Palm Beach Polo Club, Mariner Sands, The Landings, and Fisher Island.

Each placement has worked out successfully and continued their careers in a very professional manner.

Bedelia has a unique talent of finding good fits and, in fact, she has never needed to send me more that three candidates for any given position.

I highly recommend Bedelia for any executive search in the Hospitality field. She is a real leader and asset in the executive search industry."

"Dear Bedelia:

Thank you so much for introducing our chef to us at Myers Park Country Club. You were very committed and patient in finding the right person, and handled the search very professionally. You were honest and up front in presenting the facts, and conducted a thorough background check for each prospect.

Thank you for your guidance and professionalism."
