Meet the MileHighGayGuy Bloggers: Simon O'Mahony

Simon O’Mahony, originally from Dublin, Ireland, graduated with a degree in Business and Marketing.  Prior to moving to Denver in 2000, Simon worked for GE Capital Solutions in Dublin as Financial Assistant.  After meeting with several local recruiting companies for employment, it was suggested that he should become a recruiter.  Ten years later he is still recruiting.

Simon was personally recruited by Sage Hospitality and joined the organization as a Corporate Recruiter in 2006. In 2009, Simon was promoted into the role of Talent Acquisition Manager for Sage Hospitality and Sage Restaurant Group. Simon is responsible for hiring management positions for Sage Hospitality nationwide and for their corporate office in downtown Denver. He is also involved in overall recruiting initiatives including college recruiting programs, diversity initiatives, and employer branding. Simon works with several local and nationwide agencies, colleges, universities, in order to build a network and pipeline of candidates. In 2009 he was the recipient of the Sage Innovation Award as a result of his use of social media networking to enhance the recruiting process.

When he is not recruiting, (Recruiters are always working!) Simon enjoys Colorado’s beautiful outdoors. He also has a passion for photography and while it sounds like a cliché he loves meeting new people (which is why he probably loves recruiting!). Simon is a supporter of several non-profit organizations in Denver and proprietor of Simon O'Mahony Photography.
