General Manager at Urban Cowboy Lodge

General Manager at Urban Cowboy Lodge

Job Description

The experience of working at Urban Cowboy is unique, and as such, we require a unique individual to lead the team.  The General Manager (GM) will carry the torch for the brand at the property level, infuse our special recipe for hospitality into everything they do, and above all, inspire the entire team to do the same, every day.

At Urban Cowboy, the GM is responsible for supporting all aspects of the business in conjunction with the Executive and Management teams. The GM oversees all service standards, operational efficiencies, guest experience, staff retention and optimizing profit across all departments. Beyond day-to-day staff management, the General Manager is also an ambassador for the Urban Cowboy brand. As the GM, you are an influential leader and strategic business partner to all departments on property.  You tell our story, deliver our service, create our culture, support our operating team, and create an unparalleled guest experience. The General Manager works very closely with members of the Urban Cowboy team to ensure optimal experience is a result of unforgettable moments through staff interaction, experience, property and culture.

A successful General Manager will collaboratively partner with Ownership and Management to develop goals and action items for themselves, as well as the entire team, in order to optimize performance, profitability and culture. You will start actual fires while putting out proverbial ones. You will face challenges gracefully while inspiring the team, and you will likely shovel some snow.

Urban Cowboy is a hotel brand in growth mode with opportunities for cross property movement and growth in the company.  Those that join our team, join a growing family of passionate people, building a brand that matters in a time where ‘corporate’ is dead, and personality driven hospitality models are seeing their day in the industry sun.  Coming on board, you will be a change maker in the business, a partner in it’s growth and a proponent for who we are, and what we believe in.
