Chief Executive Officer, VitalTalk

The Position:

We seek an experienced Executive Director/CEO with demonstrated experience growing and scaling organizations, either in the private or social sectors, ideally with a combination of experience in both. A background in medicine or healthcare is not required but personal or professional knowledge of palliative care is helpful and a passion for the mission is critical. Our next leader will thrive in an entrepreneurial environment and enjoy creating systems and structures to manage and facilitate growth.  S/he/they will lead the founding Board of Directors through a Theory of Change and strategic planning process that will crystallize the evolving business model, product offerings and financial structures to enable the successful implementation of the strategic plan.  The new CEO will be seasoned enough to anticipate challenges and potential pitfalls, using their prior experience in growing organizations and setting strategy to create solutions that allow VitalTalk to grow, scale and meet our mission.


The CEO will guide the process to expand the Board of Directors, identifying skills and experience needed and partnering with the board to recruit two new board members each year for the next three years.  S/he/they will guide the founders’ transition from active founder roles to a more traditional board governance function. This individual will oversee board development and define the role that board members will play in growing the organization and maintaining high quality products and support to the faculty, clinician community and staff.
