CEO | Online Business Information and Training Company | Seattle or Okanagan Valley, WA or BC, U.S. or Canada

Are you a proven leader that can develop a winning culture that attracts, develops and retains great people?  Are you entrepreneurial and do you make things happen?  Are you willing to roll up your sleeves to understand customer needs and motivations that leads to sales, marketing and product development insights?

If so, let’s talk.  We are seeking a CEO to lead a business information and online training company with over $5 million in annual revenue.  The company has a strong portfolio of products in a growing space and needs a CEO who can lead the company to prosperity.  The CEO will share in the rewards of building value for the business.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate:  a high potential company with a well respected brand whose potential has not been realized in recent years.  The company has thousands of customers who subscribe to its information products and online tools.

Position Overview

The new CEO will be responsible for leading the company and delivering all short-term and longer-term operational and financial objectives, as established by the Board. The CEO will be responsible for running and profitably growing this business by providing a vision for the company, tight operational focus, aligning resources to support priorities and overseeing the development of a scalable sales methodology. This CEO role is not for an “optimizer,” but rather someone who thinks big and can profitably scale an information business with a strong work ethic, agility and a pioneering spirit. Also desired is someone who is comfortable doing the work in a fast-paced and occasionally ambiguous environment, where resources are available, but precious. This is a turnaround opportunity with a high potential company that has fallen short of financial objectives in recent years.
