The Best
In The Business

Owned and operated by hospitality professionals.
We love this industry and the people in it.

INAC Hospitality is owned and operated by Paul Mawdsley and Ben Tate. Paul is the founder and a qualified chef with over 20 years’ industry experience. From his personal experience of witnessing high kitchen staff turnover, Paul recognized the need for a niche service offering skilled hospitality staff to business’s and organizations of all sizes.

“Coming from a hospitality background is what sets us apart from our competitors and has quickly propelled us to becoming one of Australia’s leading hospitality agencies”

Ben Tate, Operations Manager at INAC Hospitality is a qualified technical analyst and IT consultant with several years’ prior experience in front of house and banqueting. It is his role to ensure we are always keeping up with constantly evolving technologies and recruitment methods.

Sebastian Forcone manages our QLD and NSW offices and has come a long way from being Paul’s apprentice many moons ago! From day one Sebastián has always shared INAC Hospitality philosophy of not just plugging holes. Seb and his team do whatever it takes to ensure our clients are assigned the most suitable staff for their business.

Paul, Ben and Sebastian are supported by an amazing team of consultants who work hard and share their philosophy for hospitality recruitment. Passion for this industry is the most important thing to all of us. We can teach our consultants the recruitment side of the business but having that knowledge for hospitality and its people is what sets us apart and ensures we get it right 99.9% of the time!
