WittKieffer is pleased to work with Healthcare Georgia Foundation to identify the Foundation’s next President. Healthcare Georgia Foundation (HGF), located in Atlanta, GA, seeks a collaborative, equity-minded leader to drive and advance HGF’s mission of health equity for all Georgians.

Established in 1999 as a private independent statewide Foundation, HGF’s mission is “to enable, improve, and advance the health and well-being of all Georgians.”  Guided by a twenty-year history of grant making, HGF is one of the largest healthcare foundations in Georgia. HGF has assets of approximately $135 million with annual grant making at $3.8 million and an operating budget of approximately $3M. Since its inception, HGF has awarded over 1,100 grants totaling more than $78 million in charitable activities. In 2018, HGF began to expand into health impact investing. This move allowed HGF to tap into a new market where the organization is able to invest in organizations statewide seeking to improve health outcomes, resulting in a social and/or environmental impact while also receiving a financial return.

Reporting directly to HGF’s Board of Directors, the President will provide executive oversight and management of the Foundation’s operations and serve as the voice and face of HGF.  As HGF enters the latter stages of its strategic plan, this executive must ensure completion of the plan while also reviewing the Foundation’s performance and outcomes. After performing a thorough assessment of the operations, the President will work in collaboration with the Board of Directors and senior staff to develop and implement HGF’s new strategic plan. The President will be an innovative, visionary leader able to further the mission by addressing the social determinants of health and healthcare disparities across the state.  Other major priorities for the President include partnering with the Diversity Committee of the Board of Directors to develop and implement the Foundation’s diversity strategy; assessing the staff and identifying opportunities for future growth and development; evaluating the organizational structure for future alignment; and identifying opportunities to elevate the Foundation’s visibility and impact across the state.

Candidates should have a minimum of seven years of experience managing a team and a budget. The ideal candidate will be a transparent, authentic leader with a passion for serving vulnerable and underserved populations. This leader will be a visionary who inspires and collaborates with others. The President will be a highly effective communicator and people manager. This leader must be comfortable in public settings and able to successfully navigate complex political and social landscapes. The ideal candidate will have strong business and financial acumen and be driven by the mission of HGF.

Interested parties may apply, inquire, or nominate a colleague to the search team of Keshia Harris and Mondria Davenport via the WittKieffer Candidate Portal here.
