Witt/Kieffer is honored to partner with the Crotched Mountain Foundation in recruiting its next President and Chief Executive Officer. With the upcoming retirement of Michael Coughlin, the Board is seeking an inspiring leader who will strategically build upon the efforts Michael initiated, especially around culture, focus and fiscal sustainability. CMF provides specialized education, rehabilitation, community and residential support services, with approximately 650 employees and an annual budget in excess of $45 million.
Since being established in 1953, Crotched Mountain Foundation (CMF) has provided unmatched services to thousands of children and adults with intellectual/developmental disabilities, creating a lifelong alliance. This 501(c)3 nonprofit has a 1,400-acre campus in Greenfield, NH that is home to Crotched Mountain School, which offers special education, full-time residential living, year-round accessible recreation, and a comprehensive suite of therapeutic supports. Currently there are approximately 75 Residential students and 25 Day students. Ready Set Connect is one example of a blossoming program, providing one-on-one Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy to young children with autism in a group setting, with locations in Manchester and Concord, NH.
Creating greater clarity around the mission, communicating the success and vision for the future, while displaying the confidence and leadership qualities that will earn credibility in all interactions will be key. Aggressively driving overall fundraising, while creating that greater understanding of Crotched Mountain's impact to those they serve, will be a major point of emphasis. She/he will focus on developing and implementing strategic plans, performance measurements, management controls and effectively communicating the vision and impact internally and externally. The new President and CEO will serve as the external voice/face of the organization and primary advocate for increasing support from school districts, state and federal governmental agencies, foundations and other collaborative partners.
Inquiries, nominations and applications are invited.
