The company will operate under the AETHOS Consulting Group name.
NEW YORK – In a move that results in the creation of the world’s largest hospitality executive search and advisory firm, Keith Kefgen, Managing Director & CEO of AETHOS Consulting Group announces the firm’s merger with west coast-based Greger/Peterson Associates, Inc. Greger/Peterson will begin operating immediately under the AETHOS Consulting Group name.
“Greger/Peterson has a sterling reputation in the hospitality industry, as well as in leisure, entertainment and media,” says Kefgen. “Coupled with our global presence and wide range of advisory services, the merger will benefit our global clients with additional resources and increased senior-level expertise.”
Kefgen adds, “Not only do we gain Ken Greger, John Peterson and Matt Peterson as business partners, we add office locations in Portland and Los Angeles, which is a critical aspect of our growth strategy.” AETHOS in 2015 added an office in Australia to complement its North American and European operations.
“After 25 years as a boutique firm focused on delivering superb results for all concerned, our primary focus in considering this move was to determine if our firms had similar values regarding service, quality and integrity,” states Ken Greger, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Greger/Peterson Associates, Inc.
“Before agreeing to the merger, both firms applied the same level of diligence we apply when conducting a search; we invested serious time to get to know one another. The decision to combine our firm with AETHOS assures clients they will be getting the very best. Our commitment to delivering quality results remains intact. Clients will benefit from added areas of expertise, value-added advisory services and broader geographic reach.”
