Rose Community Foundation seeks talented individuals to join our team:

 

President and CEO

The Board of Trustees at Rose Community Foundation has selected a search committee from its membership to oversee the search process for the Foundation's next President and CEO. After meeting and interviewing various executive search firms, the committee selected Isaacson, Miller to lead the search.

More details about the search process are posted on Isaacson, Miller’s website at www.imsearch.com/6188. We anticipate that the search process for this transition will take several months, so it's likely that a new president and CEO will not be named until the fall of 2017 at the earliest.
