SV2 seeks a dynamic, committed, and entrepreneurial leader who will bring a strong combination of strategy, business modeling, operations, and financial skills to the role. The CEO at SV2 will have the distinct privilege of leading an organization operating at one of the most unique and exciting leverage points for impact in the philanthropic ecosystem. SV2 creates and delivers effective program offerings and nurtures a rich philanthropic partnership network in the Bay Area. The organization engages its Partners to guide them as they work to create systemic and transformative change as well as drive innovation through strategic philanthropy to address the most pressing issues of our time. The CEO will be a transformational leader who will continue to catalyze SV2’s current network of philanthropists and impact investors to more effectively deliver lasting change, and lay the groundwork to attract future generations of Partners to the organization.
Collaborating closely with the Board and Staff, the CEO will launch and lead the process to build SV2’s next strategic plan. This will require a visionary leader with entrepreneurial grit in order to identify and capitalize on new avenues for increased impact and reach, but in a manner that balances appetite for innovation with the practicalities of growth and execution. The CEO will also lead SV2 into a post-COVID-19 world and continue to adapt the organization and iterate on its programming to accommodate greater virtual learning, collaboration, and community-building.
