The Massachusetts Business Alliance for
Education (MBAE), a nonprofit education advocacy organization,
seeks a dynamic Executive Director
based out of its Boston headquarters. This is an
exciting opportunity for a sophisticated team player and leader to
direct a program of strategic policy advocacy to
ensure that every child in Massachusetts receives
a high quality education that will put them on the path to
successful lives and meaningful employment.

Since its founding in 1988, MBAE has
been committed to the belief that it is in
the interest of every employer in Massachusetts to promote and
advance K-12 education and to close the achievement and opportunity
gaps in public education. In 1993, Massachusetts took dramatic
steps, based on a blueprint laid out in MBAE's seminal reform
proposal, Every Child a Winner, to improve the
state's K-12 public education system. As a result, student
achievement improved and by many measures Massachusetts leads the
nation in K-12 public education. However, racial and socio-economic
achievement gaps persist. MBAE is committed to closing the chronic
achievement gaps in the Massachusetts public education system.
Failure to close these gaps would result in jobs continuing to go
unfilled while the state's most vulnerable students get left on the
economic sidelines.

MBAE is a vibrant organization, with
strong finances, an engaged board of directors, and a network of 30
business affiliates collectively representing over 26,000 local
employers across the state. After over a decade of strong
leadership and organizational growth under retiring Executive
Director Linda Noonan, MBAE is poised to begin a new chapter of
research, developing evidence-based solutions, and advocating for
policies that will create equitable educational opportunities for
all students. Through its current programs and initiatives, MBAE is
keenly focused on the following goals: (1) ensuring equitable and
effective distribution and use of funding for education; (2)
increasing school leader autonomy and flexibility; (3) closing the
digital equity gap; and (4) expanding opportunities to earn
industry-recognized credentials in high school.

In its next Executive Director, MBAE
seeks a strategic, results-oriented leader and a proactive
advocate, who, working in partnership with the organization's Board
and staff, will develop a forward-looking strategy for the
organization that will ensure impact, financial stability and
growth. The Executive Director will galvanize the organization and
other educational advocacy and policy leaders in its continued work
to strengthen public education for all students across the
Commonwealth. The Executive Director will bring passion, innovation
and an entrepreneurial spirit to building and guiding a development
strategy and an ability to craft a compelling case for support that
will inspire the next generation of donors (foundations, companies
and individuals) to MBAE. This person should be comfortable
operating within complicated political contexts, and recognize the
value of strategic partnerships within government, the corporate
community and education sector as well as with business advocacy
organizations for education in other states.

All inquiries, nominations/referrals,
and applications (including resume and letters of interest
responding to the position challenges and objectives outlined
above) will be held in the strictest confidence and should be
submitted via Isaacson, Miller's website:

Daniel Rodas, Vice President
