Founded in 2001, the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia (SBN) is a growing community of independent, locally owned businesses that are committed to improving their environmental and social impacts as well as their profit margin. As a founding member of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies, SBN is a leader in the international movement that is building a future where businesses do well by investing in the quality of life for all citizens; serving community needs, sharing wealth, and protecting the environment.
SBN has a small, dedicated staff team, a passionate and engaged board, and a dynamic membership of business leaders. The mission of SBN is to build a just, green and thriving economy in the Greater Philadelphia region. For the past eleven years SBN has provided education, resources and a collective voice for our members and partners, while challenging, educating and inspiring policy makers and the general public to support local businesses and help them prosper. In all the operations and interactions of the organization, the board and staff of SBN are continually striving to set an unprecedented example for how businesses and communities can coexist, collaborate, and create a more sustainable society. SBN seeks a new Executive Director to build upon the strong foundation laid by the first Executive Director, who is moving on after an eight-year tenure.
As the leader of a community of entrepreneurs, SBN requires a dynamic, innovative and entrepreneurial executive director (ED); one who will build on existing programs and partnerships to accomplish our mission, and propel us towards achieving our collective vision.
The ED functions as the Chief Executive Officer of SBN, and is responsible for implementation of the policies, and planned strategic goals and objectives of the organization. The ED is the chief fundraiser and oversees the financial, program, and administrative management of the corporation. As the public face of SBN, the ED must embody and champion our values and principals. As CEO the ED must have the ability to see the larger picture, while skillfully managing details and establishing a stable, nurturing and productive working environment.
