The Vice President of Administration will play an integral role in overseeing diverse and strategically important corporate functions and positioning those functions for growth as SNG expands. The three key functional areas of focus today are IT, corporate operations and marketing/communications, which are each in varying stages of maturity. The VP of Administration will provide strategic management and visionary leadership to ensure operational excellence and efficiency. If you have excellent people skills, are a fanatic for collaboration, and demonstrate keen business acumen and exemplary work ethic, we’d like to meet you.
The VP of Administration will be a leader responsible for overseeing, executing and following through on initiatives in each of the above areas or others that are strategically important for the organization. As an SNG Leader, the VP of Administration will collaborate with fellow SNG leadership team members in strategic planning, policy development, priority setting, and decision making. This position will require a balance of strategic vision and attention to detail, combined with a “can do” attitude and a willingness to “get your hands dirty” when necessary. This person will champion SNG’s growth strategies as well as SNG’s core values. The ideal candidate will be comfortable dealing with ambiguity and able to think strategically with a bias for action and execution.
We also want you to be a person we enjoy collaborating with, spending time with, and investing in. You may be this person if you already invest heavily in those you work with, and if you consistently receive the feedback that you are a great colleague and teammate. A great sign is if people go out of their way to work with you, no matter the situation.
