What does a Regional Manager do?

Regional managers oversee a number of separate store, office or business branches within companies and organizations. As a regional manager, you're responsible for the staffing, profit, performance and other operations at each branch you manage. Your job includes instructing branch management and supervisors at every location and reporting your regional branches' performance to upper administration. Supervisors, store managers or general managers can eventually become regional managers with leadership and industry experience. A regional manager could eventually become a CEO or company president with the right experience and connections.

Most hiring companies prefer that you hold a Bachelor's degree in business or the company's specific field. Further graduate studies may also stand out on your resum'. Regional managers must have strong decision-making and problem-solving skills. They must also be able to multitask and work under conditions that are high in stress. Though they should already be experts in their industry, regional managers should demonstrate an ongoing knowledge of their industry complete with continuing education.
