He/she will lead the management team that includes the Member Services Director, Executive Chef, Waterfront Manager, Pool Director, Bookkeeper, Front Office Manager, Sailing and Junior Sailing Directors. The Club enjoys significant staff stability. In season, the Club employs 35 staff.
The underpinnings of the best candidate will be an effusive, friendly nature, a hands-on style, and one that will take input while offering options. Candidates must be technically sound in creating and defining a service culture that pervades the entire organization as well as provide a “can do” attitude that has been a theme of one’s work history.
As is typical in yacht clubs, committees are active especially in the sailing areas, yet the Club is very eager to empower a General Manager who will run the business and provide information and strategic options to the Board of Governors. While the Eastern Point Yacht Club is grounded in tradition, its members are eager to enjoy progressive programs and services throughout the Club. This is an opportunity to make a huge impact. An individual with at least some history of residing in a northeast coastal community is preferred.
The Club undertakes several capital projects each year, therefore experience in planning such projects would be useful.
