Colorado: Facilities Manager #906

The newly created position of Facilities Manager is responsible for maintaining the residential portfolio of a private family with primary residences in the Denver, CO area as well as vacation residences.  This position by design is a very hands-on role. While it is expected that additional direct reports, as identified by the Facilities Manager, will join the team, this position will remain intimately involved in the day-to-day maintenance of the properties. It is envisioned that this individual will be responsible for identifying, prioritizing and overseeing all building operations, maintenance, safety and security systems, landscaping, irrigation as well as the management of regular contract maintenance performed by third-party vendors. The Facilities Manager must be willing and able to perform hands-on repairs, conduct in-depth inspections and audits of all equipment, plant & building systems and develop routine maintenance checklists, budgets, and logs.  The Facilities Manager will be responsible for developing and implementing a Facility Maintenance Master Plan to address deferred maintenance and necessary capital improvement projects.

The Facilities Manager must be capable of integrating seamlessly within an evolving family and comfortable working closely within a private home setting, with shifting priorities.  The successful candidate will be confident exercising their initiative and will demonstrate a well-honed sense of intuition and the ability to anticipate contingencies in a common-sense fashion. It is foreseen that this position will manage several direct reports and numerous vendors and contractors. This new role is ideally suited for a mid-career professional coming from the private service, high-end hospitality, yachting or private resort/club environments and should be comfortable in family-facing interactions. Travel in support of facilities requirements at other family-owned properties will be required.

Competitive Salary and incentive plan as well as additional benefits are provided. This is a live-out position and candidates already in the area are encouraged to apply. Relocation will be considered for the right candidate as well.
