THE POSITION 
Our roster has an opening with your name on it 

Strategy and Operations Senior Vice President leads two teams (~15 FTEs in total) that help get tough projects solved and implemented in the business.  The teams are akin to an internal consulting team and a business program management office.  The teams focus on a variety of projects that are complex, cross-functional and require a combination of problem solving and execution.  The team works on both long-term strategic projects (e.g., 5-year plan, how to enter new countries, M&A opportunities) as well as near-term, tactical projects focused on efficiency and execution.  The SVP will also work collaboratively with the other C-suite executives to ensure strategies are well defined and then well–executed.

Strategy and Operations Senior Vice President will work on some of the tougher, complex issues that the business faces.  They will also work to identify what the business needs to continue to execute their recommendations going forward.  The role will work with senior leaders across the organization, and work in lock-step with the CEO.  A critical element of the job is to work with the entire C-Suite and ensure they are executing and aligned in both strategy and day-to-day operations.  Other partners they will work with on more specific projects include the General Managers of the different business lines, CMO, COO, CLO, and VPs at every level.  Example projects the team will work on are:

  • Setting strategy for how to enter new countries
  • Ensuring businesses are ready for launch of business lines in each state
