Company: Food Bank of South Central Michigan
Location: Battle Creek
Posted on: September 26, 2018

Job Description:

The Food Bank of South Central Michigan (FBSCM) – is seeking an Executive Director to usher this noble organization into its next growth phase. While FBSCM has experienced much success in its 35+ year history, it has struggled as of late to find an Executive Director capable of setting a vision for the new wave of food banking; a leader who inspires the trust and confidence of the Board, staff and multiple key stakeholders. This essential, regional food distribution network is headquartered in Battle Creek, MI and serves those residing in the surrounding 8-counties. With strong funding partnerships (including several Fortune 500 companies), an experienced team, a new and energized board and a mission that resonates with families, donors and policymakers alike, this organization is ripe for an entrepreneurial leader who wants to make their mark in a meaningful way.

The successful candidate will be a talented networker who demonstrates a proactive management style and strong business acumen; a person capable of leading the FBSCM's 27 employees and army of volunteers as they distribute over 8 million pounds of food to more than 189,000 people in need every year. As the public face of this Food Bank, the Executive Director must have an engaging, compelling presence and be genuine in their desire to achieve food security in this region!

The Executive Director is responsible for the overall administration and management of the FBSCM, including its staff, programs, facilities, finances, events and partnerships. Guided by the 12-member Board of Directors, the Executive Director's primary focus will be to ensure that the FBSCM's services and funding relationships are robust enough to meet or exceed strategic goals and objectives.

      • Ensure timely fundraising goals are set and met
      • Seek new/additional revenue through diverse sources including grants, partnerships, donations, etc. (Current revenue averages $14.5M annually)
