Site Selectors Guild Seeks First Executive Director
24 May, 2018
The Site Selectors Guild, the only professional association of the world’s foremost site selection consultants, is seeking a dynamic self-starter to become its first full-time Executive Director. As the “face” of our organization (and our only employee) you will administer the day-to-day business of the Guild; help execute our new strategic plan; form new alliances; increase opportunities for collaboration among Guild members; grow membership; and always be investigating new means to increase revenues. This position reports to the Board of Directors; you will be supported by a network of existing service providers including our accounting firm, legal advisor, marketing and communications provider and event planner.
Founded in 2010, the Guild is a for-profit corporation, operating virtually and comprising 44 members. Our primary mission is raise the visibility of the site selection profession among corporate location decision-makers. Our annual conference, which consistently sells out, has changed the landscape for such events in our industry and has become a major (and reliable) source of revenues.
We are seeking someone of the highest caliber and integrity who is capable of working independently and of thriving in a startup-type environment. The ideal candidate will have had experience managing a volunteer-driven organization (particularly a small trade or professional association). Prior P&L responsibility at the organization, firm or divisional level is a must. Working knowledge of site selection, economic development and business/investment attraction is helpful but not required, particularly if you are the type of person who is eager to learn about new businesses and industries.
Finally, because we are a virtual organization some travel (for meetings and selected events) will be expected. We can offer the selected candidate a competitive compensation and benefits package; a role that will provide plenty of opportunities for career growth and personal satisfaction; and the ability to work remotely. We also will devote the budget and resources necessary for the new Executive Director to perform effectively in this role.
