Background:

Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh is a nonprofit retail store dedicated to the principles of fair trade and improving the lives of marginalized people in over 30 developing countries. Purchases from our Pittsburgh store add to the volume of work for artisans around the world, keeping them employed in stable, ethical work.

Our Mission:

We create opportunities for artisans in developing countries to earn income by bringing their products and stories to our markets through long-term, fair trading relationships.
While the Pittsburgh store is part of a 30+ nationwide network of Ten Thousand Villages stores, we are independent in management and operations and governed by a local Board of Directors. We plan to strengthen local support for the fair trade movement and increase our capacity to provide stable, ethical work to our artisan partners. We are looking for a motivated, strategic thinker who will work to advance these aims and, more broadly, our mission in Pittsburgh by serving as the Vice President of our Board of Directors.

In addition to governance, the board is also heavily involved in many aspects of operations, including managing bank accounts, approving expenses, creating the annual budget, devising policies, implementing advertising and marketing plans, organizing events, pursuing grant opportunities, and more.
Store operations are run by a Store Manager, up to three part-time staff members, and seasonal temps. We also rely on substantial volunteer support so that a larger portion of store revenues can benefit the artisans.

Ten Thousand Villages Pittsburgh Benefits:

Our world by growing sales to support global artisans. By investing in partnerships, Ten Thousand Villages US helps more than 20,000 unemployed and underemployed artisans earn a decent and fair living, breaking the cycle of generational poverty. Ten Thousand Villages US chooses to work with women, people of disabilities, and other demographics often excluded from the global economy. As an independent board store with a purchasing contract with TTV US, our store’s sales in Fiscal Year 19-20 contributed $150,000 to artisans through financial investments and development, supporting the livelihoods of approximately 150 artisans and their families around the globe for that year.

Pittsburgh through community engagement efforts and partnerships with local nonprofits. Our engagement efforts aim to increase awareness of global issues and cultural heritage, and we encourage responsible consumer choices. Recurring events include presentations and activities at local schools and in our store, round table discussions between fair trade buyers, business owners, artists, and other nonprofits about the fair trade movement, and a collaborative World Fair Trade Day celebration with local guest artisans and performers. Secondly, through our partnerships, we raised $12,158 for 33 other local nonprofits in 2019. In total, we engage approximately 9,000 Pittsburgh residents and visitors each year.

The Vice President will assist the President and learn the duties of that office, act in the absence of the President, and undertake such further duties as may be assigned by the Board. It is expected that the Vice President will succeed the President upon expiration of the President’s term of office. Current responsibilities generally fall within four buckets:

Organizational Strategy and Policies

As a key player in the Strategic Planning Committee, the Vice President supports the President of the Board of Directors in planning and developing goals and objectives for the organization along with efforts to achieve them.

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.
