Green Hotel/Resort Ecomanagers
Ecomanagers are responsible for the smooth operations of resorts that are environmentally friendly. Eco-resorts are located anywhere in the world, from jungles and forests, to coastal areas and mountainsides. Managers may work for resorts located in privately owned forest preserves, such as Elk Lake Lodge in the Adirondacks, or in coastal and tropical areas, such as Concordia Eco-Resort in the Virgin Islands. Regardless of the location, ecomanagers' core responsibilities remain the same: their job is to manage all departments and oversee all aspects of the resort. In smaller organizations, they may be involved in hiring, training, and supervising staff. They may also be more directly, and actively, involved in other areas, such as working with ground maintenance crews to maintain hiking trails and clear roads of debris.
