A HOUSE MANAGER is responsible for the efficient and productive day-to-day operation of household projects. This includes supervision of any support staff and serving as the point-of-contact with vendors, running of errands, overseeing maintenance and repair, and any other household projects or family events that require management.
Working as a liaison for Principals (i.e. Home Owners), the House Manager serves as the point-of-contact for all renovation contracts, antique and art sellers, sommeliers, stylists or specialists who require time and consideration.
Where there are children in the household, the House Manager works with the Nanny on educational goals, safety, diet and the schedules of the children relative to the schedules of their parents.
The EXECUTIVE PERSONAL ASSISTANT serves as an extension of their Principal, which provides both professional and personal support, particularly with those who work from home. This role works *directly* with the Principal– from making calls on their behalf, travel planning, scheduling appointments and coordinating with a chef, dietician and trainer as to the personal care of the Principal and his or her family, whereas the House Manager has a more *independent* role. The main objective of the EPA is to give the Principal personal support for any boards they serve on, attend any events on their behalf or execute any commitments they made to others.
Both roles are vitally important to those busy families where structure is needed to stay on task, but is essential in seamlessly working together to make the home and personal life of the Principal more productive and worry-free. The House Manager/Executive Personal Assistant works to organize home and business, creating a cohesive environment.
