The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation is Looking to Hire a VP of Operations / CFO - Submit Your Resume Today!
Posted By: Will Moss on September 14, 2020

Explore Company, a retained national executive search firm is advertising a new search for the Conrad Hilton Foundation, which I would like to bring to your attention.

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation (“The Foundation”) works to improve the lives of individuals living in poverty and experiencing disadvantage throughout the world. Conrad N. Hilton, founder of Hilton Hotels, established the Hilton Foundation as a philanthropic trust in 1944.

The Foundation continues to be guided by the founder’s mandate to “relieve the suffering, the distressed and destitute.” From its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $1.8 billion in grants, distributing $110 million in the U.S. and around the world in 2019.

Foundation assets increased from approximately $2.9 billion to $6 billion following the 2019 passing of Barron Hilton who, like his father, pledged virtually his entire estate to the Foundation. The growth in financial resources presents the Foundation with an exciting opportunity to scale the impact of its work globally.

The Vice President Operations and CFO is responsible for setting financial strategy, leading, and implementing policies and practices to guide the Foundation’s financial and operational activities. The Vice President will manage a department of approximately 37, will report to the CEO, work closely with the Board and provide critical strategic financial and operational leadership. The position requires considerable demonstrated financial and facilities leadership experience. The position will be based in Westlake, CA.

The Vice President should be proven leader with strong analytical, finance, and operational skills to contribute to a growing organization widely considered among the most influential in global philanthropy. This individual will report to the President and CEO and serve on the Foundation’s Leadership Team, as well as serving as the primary staff liaison to the Board of Director’s Audit Committee. In consultation with the CEO and Leadership Team, will develop, implement, and oversee core systems and processes that drive how the organization operates.

These systems include the organization’s financial, IT and facilities operations. The Vice President will serve as an “internal consultant” to the CEO, Board, Foundation staff and other key stakeholders on all financial matters, making recommendations and suggesting pro-active strategies to keep the Foundation on track with goals and budgets.

The Vice President will manage and oversee the financial and facilities functions of the Foundation and should possess great people skills and excellent business acumen. The Vice President will help ensure the emerging global strategic grantmaking program is aligned with an inclusive and forward-looking business operations strategy.

The Vice President and CFO will guide the thoughtful and strategic deployment of the finances and operations of the Foundation. Overall, the Vice President will partner with the Foundation’s leadership to ensure that the workplace operates smoothly. Interested candidates should submit a resume and cover letter, responding specifically to the experience and qualifications required, to:
