What Does a Human Resource Manager Do?

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Mark Nicastro, chief human resource officer at Farmers National Bank explains what responsibilities a human resource manager has.

When Nicastro began college at the University of Akron, he knew he wanted a business degree, but wasn’t sure which. After a few accounting classes, he realized he didn’t want to be a numbers person, and got introduced to human resources.

He now holds an undergraduate degree in HR from Akron and a master’s from the University of Toledo, and has worked in the banking industry for 23 years.

“It has just been absolutely rewarding because every day I get to touch different aspects of the job,” he says.
