Dallas staffing company fired Brito after hiring him under false name

Last February, senior staff at the national staffing company HotelPro were alerted that the man known as "Gomez de Maria" they had hired months prior as the operations manager for their Dallas, TX office was actually conman Fred Brito. In the role, Brito led local recruiting and staffing of countless individuals in assorted support roles at local hotels, such as "Housekeeping, Laundry, Banquet, Food and Beverage personnel."

 HotelPro's website claims that employee screening is one of the services they provide, it appears that in the case of their internal management positions, this one slipped through the cracks.

 Senior staff claimed that while learning of his true identity was the trigger to fire Brito, they claimed his work performance was not up to par and they were planning on replacing him soon regardless.

 While at HotelPro, Brito used his company phone line and office facilities to promote and hold his "Power2BU" seminar.
