Pauline Rogers

Managing Director

In 1986 Pauline planted a seed for a new kind of recruitment firm – one that would redefine the highest standards and ethics. Three decades later our two brands, TCC (The Company Connection) and Black Betty Hospitality Group continue to exceed the expectations of clients in delivering exceptional talent.

As a hands-on MD of both businesses, Pauline recruits for all roles in the hospitality space as well as general Business Support and Executive for key clients.

With a background in hotels & hospitality then over 13 years’ experience leading successful recruitment teams and working with top international blue chip clients, Bianca is at the helm as GM of Black Betty recruiting across all roles. Bianca is a seasoned recruiter within the hospitality space and no job is too difficult, too big, or too small for her to turn around quickly.

Charlie Fussell

Senior Recruiter

Prior to joining Black Betty, Charlie’s hospitality career spanned 16 years, with 10 years in senior management roles, which included Group Restaurants Manager for one of Australia’s most reputable and successful players, and before that GM of Nobu in Melbourne.

Charlie cut his teeth in the industry running bars and nightclubs in London and Ibiza, then fast forward, he learned about pubs as GM of a couple of Melbourne’s favourite watering holes, including a 4 level heaving machine. Running high volume, chaotic late night venues is not for the faint hearted!

With a cocktail of experience in running many different types of venues, and recruiting from the ground up, Charlie’s intimate knowledge of hospo roles and their requirements makes Charlie the “go to guy” for anything front of house.

Daniel (Monkey) Ackman

Senior Recruiter - Pub Division

Monkey has hospitality running through his veins. Starting at the age of 12 as a waiter then a glassie, before taking the leap to Hotel Manager of a pumping CBD hotel by 18½ (the moment he was legally allowed).

With almost 2 decades in management of Hotels, Pubs and Nightclubs, working his way up the ranks to Group Operations Manager for one of Australia’s most successful Pub Groups that owns one of Sydney’s biggest drinking institutions, Monkey has a 6th sense when it comes to knowing what will work and what makes the industry tick.  Drawing on strong operational knowledge of all aspects of pub management, Monkey is a natural to source talent at all levels, including Licensees, Operations Managers, Gaming Managers, GMs….and everything in between.

With a reputation as large as his personality and connections from the east to the west…..combined with his intimate knowledge of everything drinking and party related, Monkey is your ‘go to guy’.
