Advocacy & Mission-Driven Nonprofits

Chief Executive Officer Solar One, New York City, New York

Solar One's mission is to design and deliver innovative education, training, and technical assistance that fosters sustainability and resiliency in diverse urban environments. Solar One empowers learning that changes the way people think about energy, sustainability, and resilience by engaging and educating a diverse set of stakeholders and beneficiaries.

The Opportunity

The incoming CEO will be a proven organizational leader with a commitment to Solar One’s mission to expand renewable energy throughout NYC and beyond. Solar One is uniquely positioned to grow its programs in bold new directions—both to new regions in the tri-state area and to other states and cities—as well as through innovative enterprise initiatives. Leading this growth in reach and impact will require an entrepreneurial executive with experience navigating city, state, and federal government agencies along with proven expertise as a fundraiser and relationship builder.

This new leader has much to build upon in a new era. A new CEO will find an incredibly talented, committed, and experienced senior leadership team; a vibrant, diverse staff; a financially solid organization; thriving programs across New York City’s boroughs; a historic physical presence in Stuyvesant Cove Park along Manhattan’s East River; and strong working relationships with government leaders and agencies, national and regional funders, and other key stakeholders and partners in the renewable energy community.
