Job Description:

We seek a proven leader who can demonstrate a successful career of consistently moving organizations forward in pursuit of their vision.  This individual would bring leadership characterized by an ability to garner broad community support, increase visibility of the organization, and carry forward major new projects and programs.

We seek a leader who is an exceptional communicator whose passion is evident by his or her ability to energetically and enthusiastically articulate the vision and aspirations to constituents of all kinds, including donors, businesses, civic groups, public officials, visitors, members and other stakeholders.  Given the fundraising requirements to implement the strategic plan, the ideal candidate will demonstrate a proven track record in obtaining major individual gifts, corporate sponsorships, foundation support, and government grants.

Specific experience with public gardens is not a requirement, however, an affinity and passion for the mission of public gardens must be evident. Senior-level leadership in a destination-type facility that aspires to deliver an extraordinary visitor experience is highly desirable.

A proven ability to hire, coach, and lead employees as an effective team of tightly coordinated, highly professional and self-accountable staff members is a must.  Of critical importance is the candidate’s ability to transform ideas into specific, goal-driven project outcomes. Strategic decision-making experience in project management, from basic infrastructure improvements to large-scale capital construction projects, would be ideal. Solid, demonstrated skills in operations and business management are expected.

A bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university is required; a master's degree is preferred.  Affiliation with local, state, or national professional or trade associations related to the Garden’s mission would be a plus.
