Overview

Ecomanagers hire and oversee all staff, including housekeeping, kitchen, and wait staff; grounds maintenance; public relations; and reservations. They plan, develop, and promote marketing programs, and manage the resort's finances. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are 35,480 lodging managers employed in the United States.
