I am considering hiring a guy that I have known for years as a "general manager". I want his job to take over some of the daily overseeing of the crews, and to assist in company growth and development, and customer relations plus advertising ideas. This guy had a bachelors degree, and has alot of contacts around town due to his involvement in misc. associations. I think it might be a good thing to have him around. I was considering paying him a base salary, plus some sort of bonus or commission for each new account that he can personally land for us. Do any of you have a similar position in your company? And how is it working? What jobs do you require your "general manager" to perform? Thanks, Gene .
