About Rich:

Rich Widhalm joined Goodwin Recruiting in May 2021 after spending over 30 years in corporate restaurant operations. He loves meeting and talking to people from various backgrounds and thoroughly enjoys getting to know his candidates and clients and building relationships with them to help him better serve their needs. Helping a candidate find their dream job or a client in hiring the perfect candidate for their company's needs is Rich's focus every day.

Rich started out in restaurants when he was 14 years old as a dishwasher for a mom-and-pop Mexican restaurant. After graduating high school, Rich attended Colorado State University where he began his major in microbiology with plans to become a veterinarian. However, the restaurant bug had bitten him, and he took a position as a quick-serve restaurant manager and then moved to casual dining, steadily working his way up to multi-unit director of operations before switching gears and joining Goodwin Recruiting. Rich has always enjoyed the people development part of the hospitality business and helping individuals be the best version of themselves. This desire to help others has transferred over to his role as a recruiter in helping people achieve their goals.

Rich and his wife have been married for over 30 wonderful years and have two adult children and two dogs. Being a native of Colorado, Rich enjoys being in the mountains (preferably with a fly-fishing rod in one hand and a cold Colorado microbrew in the other) or anywhere his adventurous wife takes him. He loves his Colorado teams, especially the Broncos and Avalanche, and as a restaurant guy, loves a great meal in a great atmosphere with great friends and family.
