In the running of social firms, managers play a leading role which can guide the course of these companies. In this article we analyse the theoretical elements underlying the central importance of managers in social firms, the nature of these strategic human resources, particularly the variables which guide their behaviour, and their ability to take courses of action with can strengthen or corrupt the identity of social economy. Finally, from a prescriptive perspective we analyse the possibilities and limitations of the different types of director control and selection.
