Job Description:

The New Hampshire Community Loan Fund is a federally certified, nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) based in Concord, NH. Its Founding President, Juliana Eades, recently retired after leading the organization for 36 years, leaving it in a very solid position.  The Community Loan Fund is poised for significant, continued organizational growth with a large capital base, ample demand for its programs and resources, and a very strong, well-positioned Board of Directors. It has grown from a single, part-time employee in 1983 and an initial loan of $1,500, to its current total assets of $162M, revenues of $15M, and a staff of nearly 50. With a strong team in place, the board is looking for a new leader to provide strategic, entrepreneurial leadership, likely with more emphasis on external relations and new program initiatives than on internal operational issues.  The President and CEO is responsible primarily for four essential functions: governance and support of board operations, strategic leadership, organizational management, and financial oversight.
