SFMA CEO job posting now live

The Sports Field Management Association (SFMA), in its search for a new CEO, announced June 21 that the job posting for the CEO position is now live online. The official announcement was made in a letter to SFMA members. It read as follows:

Dear SFMA Members –

We hope this letter finds you well. Per our recent communications, we wanted to provide an update on the hiring process related to the search for our new CEO.

The team at Kittleman & Associates, a highly respected executive recruitment firm, has assisted in drafting the official job posting, which is now live on their website. To view, please visit https://bit.ly/3HEev7b.  

We encourage you to share the link with any potential candidates you feel might be a great fit to lead our organization into the next chapter. As a quick refresher, the Board of Directors is looking for a candidate that will implement our strategic plan and grow the organization. That desired growth will result from expanded educational opportunities and new partnerships, diversifying revenue, programmatic offerings that promote long-term member value and enhancing the existing networking platform.

A strong, forward-thinking focus on business development is going to be key to the future success of the organization. Working directly with the Board of Directors, the new CEO will be responsible for enhancing SFMA’s role and profile as an advocate and positioning the association as the leader in the field for the years ahead.

As previously relayed, the Board implemented a succession plan back in January to guide the association through the next few months without a CEO.  Actions from this plan are underway to ensure all bases are covered and all association operations will run smoothly and effectively through the culmination of the search and hiring process.

We greatly appreciate your support during this exciting time. Please direct SFMA Operations questions to President James Bergdoll at  jbergdoll@chattanooga.gov and inquiries about the CEO position or posting to Megan Lewis with Kittleman & Associates at mlewis@kittlemansearch.com.

Best regards,

SFMA Board of Directors
