Crittenton is seeking a visionary, compassionate, and mission-driven leader as its next Chief Executive Officer. Through a collaborative approach, in partnership with staff and the Board, the next CEO will bring a new vision to the future of this highly respected and vitally important organization as it meets the ever-increasing demand for its services. The CEO is responsible for ensuring that all fiscal, operational, fund development, marketing, human resources, technology, and program strategies are effectively implemented throughout the organization.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the CEO oversees the annual operating budget of approximately $40 million and staff of 430 FTE through the following direct reports: the Senior Vice President, the Vice President of Quality Assurance, the Vice President of Development, the Vice President of Human Resources, the Chief Financial Officer, and the Executive Assistant.

•        Bring demonstrated experience with and a strong commitment to applying an equity lens to their work and a track record of centering Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Access.
•        Demonstrate a deep understanding of the organization’s programs, and the ability to effectively communicate its vision and impact to broad audiences.
•        Competitive candidates will bring a track record of excellence in senior leadership positions, ideally from other California-based complex nonprofit human service organizations recognized for their commitment to exemplary service to the community and their clients.
•        Familiarity with the process and accountability required for government funding is strongly preferred.
