CHIEF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS OFFICER

Opportunity Finance Network


Description
CHIEF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS OFFICER Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Opportunity Finance Network (OFN), the leading national membership network of community development financial institutions (CDFIs), seeks an exceptional, strategic leader to serve as its Chief External Affairs Officer (CEAO). Through its Member CDFIs and other partners, OFN helps create opportunities that benefit low-income, low-wealth, and other disadvantaged people and communities across the United States. OFN's core purpose—the reason it exists—is to align capital with social, economic, and political justice because it believes that justice for all begins with opportunity for all. OFN believes that aligning capital with justice will mean that all people have the resources to act in the best interests of their communities, themselves, and future generations. OFN Membership comprises more than 225 performance-oriented, responsible financial institutions that lend to and invest in for-profit and nonprofit businesses, affordable housing, and consumers. Over the past 30 years, OFN's network has provided more than $30 billion in financing in urban, rural, and Native communities. With cumulative net charge-off rates of only 1.7%, OFN's Member CDFIs have demonstrated they can lend successfully and productively in markets that conventional financial institutions do not or cannot serve. Reporting directly to the President and CEO and serving on the CEO's leadership team, the CEAO will manage OFN's public-facing work and position the organization for new opportunities. The CEAO will run OFN's External Affairs Group, comprising Strategic Communications, Public Policy, and Development, and will manage the three OFN Executive Vice Presidents (EVPs) in this group. The CEAO will ensure clear, consistent messaging and communications across OFN; between OFN and its Members, investors, and funders; and to the media, marketing audiences, policy makers, and opinion shapers. S/he will serve as a spokesperson to diverse audiences on a wide range of topics and issues. The CEAO will also oversee select public-facing events. This is an exciting opportunity for an accomplished executive with deep experience in communications, public policy, and/or development. The ideal candidate will bring proven experience in developing and implementing successful communication and advocacy strategies and functioning independently in public and private external settings. In addition, this candidate will be able to articulate OFN's vision in ways that galvanize CDFI funding support to both to fund OFN's programs and to raise OFN's public profile from a leader in the industry to a household name. OFN is assisted in this recruitment by Isaacson, Miller, a national executive search firm. OFN proudly values diversity. Candidates from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply. All applications, nominations, and inquiries should be directed in confidence to Michelle Cruz-Williams, Vice President & Director, Leslie McCarthy, Associate, Isaacson, Miller, 263 Summer Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02210, Email: OFN@IMsearch.com>OFN@IMsearch.com.
