On behalf of our client, Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota, CohenTaylor Executive Search Services is conducting a retained executive search for their EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR.
The Mission: The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota (EFMN) leads the fight to overcome the challenges of living with epilepsy and to accelerate therapies to stop seizures, find cures and save lives
The Vision: A world where people with seizures realize their full potential.
The Opportunity: One in 10 people will have a seizure in their lifetime, and 1 in 26 will develop epilepsy. Epilepsy is as prevalent as breast cancer, but is one of the most misunderstood and under-funded medical conditions of our time. The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota (EFMN) offers life-changing education, resources and support to the 60,000 people in our community with epilepsy. EFMN, a prominent and growing nonprofit organization, is looking for a strong leader to serve as its Executive Director and continue its growth and innovation. Could you be the next leader who joins forces with people like Coach Jerry Kill, and a dedicated staff and board, who are committed to helping people rise above seizures? This role is a great opportunity for someone who has the passion for making a difference in the lives of people with epilepsy and adding epilepsy to the community conversation. Headquartered in St. Paul, MN, EFMN has satellite offices in Duluth, Fargo/Moorhead, Rochester and St. Cloud.
The Role: EFMN seeks an Executive Director (ED) to grow its impact on the community and drive its mission. The ED provides strategic direction and leadership for the organization, develops and builds deep relationships with donors, conducts outreach to current and prospective project partners, stakeholders and the community, and serves as the primary representative for state advocacy. Responsible for EFMN’s financial and operational management, the ED leads local and statewide alliance-building and promotion to build and secure a sustained financial base for organization. Strong internal and external collaboration with staff, Board and community partners is essential to develop and implement programs aligned with the organization’s vision and strategic plan.
