Hello Friends and Colleagues,

McAlpine Consulting for Growth is currently conducting a job search for an Executive Director position with Wellness House.

Click here for the full job announcement and application instructions.

Wellness House, Chicagoland’s leader in psychosocial support for people living with cancer and their families, is seeking to hire an Executive Director who will join their staff on July 1, 2019 and can work alongside the current Chief Executive Officer, who has served the organization since 1990 and will be retiring in December 2019. This 6-month transition period will provide a tremendous opportunity to build relationships with key external stakeholders and assume responsibility for day-to-day operations. The Executive Director will be joining Wellness House as they complete a 2-year plan that has positioned the organization for significant, sustainable growth.

In 1990, Wellness House was launched with a single mission: envisioning a community where all people affected by cancer thrive. They use a psychosocial approach based on research, addressing the whole person – socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and psychologically. The staff team of 27 fulfills the mission, created by the Board of Directors, including 27 members, and together live the Principles for Action: Community, Accountability, Quality and Innovation.

Wellness House is seeking an Executive Director to step in at this pivotal time to provide additional capacity and vision as they finalize the next strategic plan that will guide the depth and breadth of programs, build upon strong governance, and grow fundraising and marketing. They are searching for an experienced, self-motivated and inspiring leader who can work well with a variety of constituencies, including volunteers, donors/grantors, healthcare professionals, business and community leaders, to engage them in the mission of Wellness House and inspire them to participate in sustainable growth to meet the growing needs of people affected by cancer.

For questions about Wellness House, the position, or search process, please contact Laura McAlpine at laura@lmcalpine.com or 773-728-0271.

Thank you,
McAlpine Consulting for Growth
