Hutchinson Consulting Expands with Launch of New Massage Therapy Division

Hutchinson Consulting, an executive search and recruiting firm for the hospitality industry, announced the launch of a new division, Spa Pro Connect, created to further support client needs by sourcing top massage therapists for placement in the finest destination, resort, and hotel spas in the country.

“The importance of highly trained, experienced massage therapists has never been higher,” says Michael G. Tompkins, a partner at Hutchinson Consulting. “World-class spas and their clients expect a level of professionalism unique to the resort environment where talented, licensed therapists are valued for their specialized skill set. The time has come for a professional search firm and hospitality clients to regard massage therapists as a brand differentiator in spa.”

Spa Pro Connect will be led by wellness industry veteran Diane Trieste. With a diverse background that includes all aspects of spa operations, Trieste excels in working with business owners and management to capitalize on the integration of education, culture, professionalism and people in order to deliver an experience that exceeds expectations for both clients and therapists. A licensed massage therapist herself, Trieste has held leadership roles at Shankara Spa, Canyon Ranch, and Bellus Academy. Trieste was part of the executive team that started Cortiva Education and is a noted speaker and author.

“Joining the team at Hutchinson Consulting means I can expand my service to the spa industry in an innovative new way,” says Trieste. “Spa Pro Connect addresses the shortage of highly-talented practitioners and creates a way for top spas to have confidence that they can meet guest demand.”

Through a proprietary interview, education and vetting process, Spa Pro Connect will assure hospitality clients that massage therapists presented for employment have the skills required for four and five-star spas. Licensed therapists will discover professional environments where their skills are honored and employment needs met by the finest hospitality establishments in the industry.

“Hutchinson Consulting has long-standing executive placement relationships with the world’s best spas,” adds Tompkins. “Expanding services to include licensed massage therapists is a natural progression.”
