Recruiting exceptional leaders for mission-driven organizations.




President and Chief Executive Officer Miami, FL

The Miami Foundation seeks an innovative, strategic, and bold President and CEO.  For more than 50 years, The Miami Foundation has partnered with donors to improve the quality of life and nurture philanthropy in an extraordinarily dynamic and complex region. Today, with assets of more than $340 million in over 1,000 funds and annual grantmaking of more than $60 million, the Foundation is poised to play an increasingly prominent and transformational leadership role as a trusted resource and agent of change. It addresses critical regional needs through its grantmaking, informs and inspires donors and partners, and works beyond the grants to leverage its knowledge and influence through collaborations, advocacy, research, communications, and thought leadership.

The new President must be a strategic thinker, creative risk-taker, persuasive communicator, seasoned and decisive manager, enthusiastic fundraiser, and excellent relationship builder. Candidates may come from a nonprofit, public sector, philanthropic, or business background, preferably with experience spanning sectors. Experience and active networks in the Miami region are strongly preferred. At a minimum, the President should have worked in a similar urban setting and be excited at the prospect of becoming a leader in Miami’s civic and community life. An understanding of how nonprofits operate is also important, as is a grasp of the complexity of the Foundation’s financial services work. Experience working with and/or answering to an engaged governing board is preferred.

Confidential inquiries, nominations/referrals, and applications (including resumes and 1-3 page letters of interest responding to the challenges outlined above) should be submitted electronically via this website.

This search will be led by Karen Wilcox with Chloe Kanas and Berlinda Mojica.

The Miami Foundation values diversity and inclusion and welcomes and actively encourages a diverse pool of candidates in this search.
