Barco-Newton Family YMCA
As a major employer in one of the fastest growing counties in the country, YMCA of Snohomish County impacts 40,000 people annually with a $21M ($30M pre-Covid) operating budget. Because our amazing 29-year tenured Chief Financial Officer (CFO) is retiring, we are hiring an experienced, high-performing CFO to be an active participant in and driver of the organization’s overall business strategy, while setting and monitoring the YMCA of Snohomish County’s financial policy and direction. The Chief Financial Officer represents the organization to financial partners, including financial institutions, investors, foundation executives, auditors, public officials, etc. As a member of the senior leadership team who reports to the President and Chief Executive Officer, the CFO will work closely with a motivated and engaged Finance Committee of the Board of Trustees. The CFO leads the Finance and Information Technology Teams. S/he must be able to adapt to a continually evolving environment and thrive in an autonomous and deadline-oriented workplace.
The ideal candidate must possess strong organizational and operational competencies for successful performance. Candidates must have at least 10 years of broad finance (accounting, audit, budgeting, control and reporting) experience in a service based organization with a budget of at least 5 million. The qualified candidate must also have demonstrated success in managing and growing operating budgets in order to execute and exceed the goals of the Association's overall Operating Plan. Because YMCA of Snohomish County encompasses 6 YMCA facilities and an affiliation with Big Brothers Big Sisters, experience with a multiple site multi-functional organization is a must. This position must also have 10 years of debt financing and associated banking relationship experience. Additionally, the CFO must have 10 years of experience leading governance, such as the Finance Committee of the Board of Directors.
