Chief Finance and Operations Officer

The Everglades Foundation’s commitment to restore and protect the Everglades is driven by science. Founded in 1993 by two outdoor enthusiasts — the late George Barley and Paul Tudor Jones II — The Everglades Foundation works energetically and with a sense of urgency to bring people together and provide a powerful voice for Everglades restoration at the state and national levels. The Everglades Foundation is now seeking a strategic leader to be their Chief Finance & Operations Officer (CF&OO).

The Everglades Foundation supports the science and public funding efforts needed to restore and protect America’s Everglades. The Everglades Foundation is dedicated to restoring and protecting one of the world’s unique natural ecosystems — providing economic, recreational, and life-sustaining benefits to millions of people who depend on its future health. The ecosystem is home to 2,000 species of beautiful and fascinating wading birds, mammals, fishes, reptiles, amphibians and plants. It is home to 78 threatened or endangered species, provides freshwater to nine million Floridians and is an international destination. However, America’s Everglades is on life support. More than 100 years of ditching and draining have reduced the wetland to half its original size; its wading bird population has diminished by 90%; and pollution and other impacts have harmed much of the remaining ecosystem resulting in toxic algae outbreaks and regional environmental and economic loss.

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer and serving as an integral member of the Executive Leadership Team, the Chief Finance & Operations Officer (CF&OO) is responsible for overseeing the Foundation’s financial interests and day-to-day operations. The CF&OO will assist the Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Programs Officer, and Vice President of Development with high-level organizational decisions and strategy. The CF&OO is responsible for the Foundation’s fiscal activities, including annual budgeting, planning, reporting, and auditing; and will identify and address financial risks and opportunities, supervise financial reporting and departmental budgeting, evaluate financial activities for efficiency and effectiveness, and coordinate with the CEO and Executive Leadership team in the implementation of the Foundation’s Strategic Plan. Additionally, the CF&OO will oversee administrative staff to effectively meet the administrative and operational needs of the organization and to maximize productivity, efficiency, and effectiveness.

The new CF&OO will come to the role with a distinguished record of advanced leadership in finance and administration, as well as demonstrated successes in meeting (or exceeding) strategic goals and objectives, in not-for-profits or a similarly complex organizational setting. The CF&OO will be a superb communicator with exceptional analytical skills who works collaboratively with colleagues; understands and respects shared governance; and advances an environment of inclusive decision-making, as well as show understanding of the importance of the educational philosophy and mission while addressing financial challenges. A demonstrated ability to work with diverse communities is required. A nuanced understanding of emerging needs and trends in finance and investments is highly desirable.

The CF&OO can be based in Miami or elsewhere in South Florida, with a strong commitment to spending significant time in the Palmetto Bay office, a suburb of Miami. The Foundation’s new CF&OO will have the opportunity to play a key role in the Foundation’s evolution to national and international prominence for its critical and cutting-edge scientific research and education programs dedicated to ensuring a strong and secure future for America’s Everglades. As the leading voice in Everglades restoration, The Everglades Foundation is a responsible employer that seeks to recruit and retain outstanding, high-performing professionals who are at the top of their fields, to thrive in a dynamic, mission-driven culture committed to excellence, innovation, collaboration, and diversity. Additional information, including a leadership profile can be found at www.wittkieffer.com.

Inquiries, nominations and applications are invited. The search process is currently underway and will continue until the position is filled. Application materials should be submitted using WittKieffer’s candidate portal. Nominations and inquiries can be directed to Mercedes Chacón Vance and Jessica Herrington at EvergladesFoundationCFOO@wittkieffer.com.
