Alex Atwood, Founder Gravy Work


Raised in a Persian immigrant family of staffing entrepreneurs, Alex has lived and breathed the hospitality industry since birth. He worked as a bartender, waiter, cook, and dishwasher and for multiple catering companies...to this day you may even find him working behind an omlet station! After founding PenguinSTAFF, a temporary staffing agency built exclusively for the staffing industry, and the Hospitality Training Institute, he bootstrapped Gravy to streamline and modernize the way employers and job seekers connect. Alex knows the pains of shortcomings in hospitality staffing and has custom-built the solution.
