Do you need to be a CPA in order to be a well paid accountant?

I'm a Math major and I've been interning working revenue for a hotel which seems to be just a lot of accounting duties on excel and putting up financial reports and I find the tasks pretty easy. Do you need to have a CPA license in order to make decent money being an accountant or auditor for a business? Is the CPA designation only necessary if you want to prepare taxes for businesses and individuals?
