The Culver City Chamber of Commerce has launched a nationwide search for a new President & CEO, following the departure of Colin Diaz earlier this year. Contracting with the executive search firm of Waverly Partners, the Chamber is seeking an outstanding and experienced executive to lead the organization going forward.
The ideal candidate will have at least 10 years of progressively responsible experience with a proven track record of success and may come from a variety of backgrounds such as: the top executive of a progressive and comparably sized chamber of commerce, economic development organization, or related significant business association; experience as a “second in command” or other senior-level executive at a larger like-enterprise as noted above; an executive with a strong record of community involvement from a complex private, public-sector or nonprofit entity. Experience working within a metropolitan marketplace along with significant Board interaction and experience leading volunteers are all strongly desired. The successful candidate should demonstrate strong presentation and public speaking abilities along with being politically astute. This person should understand nonprofits and different areas of finance, and have a robust sales/marketing and successful event planning experience to grow membership.
“We have an incredible organization and are located in one of the hottest communities in the country,” said Chamber Chair Maria Jacobo. “We are excited about what the future holds and are looking forward to interviewing candidates that will help us take the Culver City Chamber of Commerce to the next level.”
