Environmental Programs Director
Position & Purpose
At Amfac Parks & Resorts, the nation's premier National and State park concessionaire, environmental stewardship is fundamental. In January 2000, Amfac adopted an ambitious Environmental Initiative reflecting Amfac's role as an industry leader in protecting and preserving our environment. Amfac has determined that the most effective way to implement its Environmental Initiative is to create the senior management position of Environmental Programs Director. The Director will be responsible for assisting more than 25 Amfac properties in National and State parks and private resorts with the implementation and application of the Environmental Initiative to the individual properties, in settings as diverse as the Florida Everglades, Death Valley, Yellowstone, Silverado Country Club & Resort and the Grand Canyon. The position will involve developing, implementing and maintaining environmental strategies and programs for Amfac Parks & Resorts, consistent with the Environmental Initiative. The Director will also be responsible for ensuring compliance with all applicable environmental laws.
This senior management position will report to Amfac's Vice President & Assistant General Counsel.
A minimum of either: (1) a Master's Degree in Environmental Science, or another relevant field, and 4 years' professional experience, preferably within the hospitality industry, in all phases of conservation and environmental management; or (2) a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Science, or another relevant field, and 6 years' professional experience, preferably within the hospitality industry, in all phases of conservation and environmental management.
The position requires pragmatic business and ecological sense, as well as the ability to implement programs that benefit Amfac's guests, employees, property owners, and the ecosystems in which Amfac operates. The Director must communicate effectively with both corporate and field employees to explore, identify and exploit opportunities to minimize the environmental impacts of Amfac's business practices.
The position also requires familiarity with environmental laws and regulations as they relate to the hospitality industry, and an ability to keep abreast of this developing and complex field. Well-developed personal computer skills are also essential.
