The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the Aspen Institute in the search for an Executive Vice President for Finance and Enterprise Business Development (EVP).

Reporting to the President and Chief Executive Officer, the EVP is the Chief Financial Officer of the Aspen Institute—a critical role ideally suited for a mission-driven, entrepreneurial leader who can drive organizational development and innovative financial management. The EVP will serve as a key partner to the President and CEO in developing the strength, aspirations, and sustainability of the Institute. The EVP is a member of the Institute’s Senior Executive Team (SET)—which leads all strategic, operational, and management functions of the Institute—and works closely with members of the Board of Trustees.

The EVP leads the Institute’s Finance department and supervises the Vice President for Finance. The department has 25 staff and oversees the Institute’s fiscal, budgetary, accounting, and audit processes, ensuring compliance with all legal and regulatory standards applicable to a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, and providing overall advice and support to the Institute to enable the strategic management of its financial resources. In their management capacity, the EVP will empower and motivate staff through active communication, coaching, and honest and constructive feedback with an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion and its value to successful teams and organizations.

The Aspen Institute is a global nonprofit organization committed to realizing a free, just, and equitable society. Founded in Aspen, Colorado in 1949 as the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies, the Institute drives change through dialogue, leadership, and action to help solve the most important challenges facing the United States and the world. It brings together thoughtful people with diverse backgrounds and points of view; cultivates and supports values-based, purpose-driven leaders in many communities; and turns ideas into action and impact for individuals and society. The Aspen Institute has earned a reputation for gathering diverse, nonpartisan experts, creatives, scholars, and grassroots leaders to address some of the world’s most complex problems. Its goal is always to have an impact beyond the convening space, and to provoke, further, and improve actions taken in the world.

With its Washington, D.C. headquarters, Aspen campus, network of international partners, more than 500 staff, and dozens of programs, the Aspen Institute has significant reach, vast networks, and a track record of success. Its 20+ Policy Programs use the tools of convening, leadership development, network building, practice sharing, and collective impact to drive change in crucial issue areas—ranging from educational excellence to economic opportunity, and from climate change to national security. Its Leadership Programs and the fellowships of the Aspen Global Leadership Network cultivate the next generation of values-based, purpose-driven change-makers across sectors, and ground their work in the Executive Seminar—which dates to the Institute’s founding. Its Public Programs—anchored by the signature Aspen Ideas Festival—bring people together to elevate breakthrough ideas and inspire progress on the most pressing challenges facing our world.

A bachelor's degree is required for this position as is at least fifteen years of management experience, ideally in a complex nonprofit or other mission-driven environment. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of the Aspen Institute as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the position prospectus.
