SF AIDS Foundation posts CEO job description

The San Francisco AIDS Foundation, which announced in August that current CEO Neil Giuliano is leaving, has finally posted the job description for the top position, the nonprofit announced today (Tuesday, November 24).

Executive search firm Egon Zehnder published the posting for the job, which involves overseeing a budget of $32 million and a staff of 141 full-time employees. Founded more than 30 years ago, SFAF provides a wide variety of free services, including HIV testing, counseling, and syringe access to thousands of people every year.

Giuliano, who joined the nonprofit in December 2010, is becoming president and CEO of Greater Phoenix Leadership, a business organization focused on civic improvement initiatives.

“The foundation is at the forefront of HIV prevention and care and we are confident that our partners at Egon Zehnder will be able to identify a visionary leader who is up to the task,” SFAF board Chair Michael Kidd said in a news release. “In order to attract top talent, we ask for the community’s help to spread the word.”

The job description doesn’t list salary information, but Giuliano’s total compensation for the fiscal year ending in June 2014 was $327,447, according to SFAF’s most recently available tax filings.

“The incoming CEO will have the opportunity to lead the foundation at a pivotal moment,” the job posting says. “The foundation has played a key role in evolving the conversation surrounding HIV, and profound success in bringing new HIV cases and AIDS-related deaths in the San Francisco community to zero. Now that the disease has to a great extent been mainstreamed, the question of the organization’s next strategic thrust is one that needs to be defined. The foundation needs a CEO who can think strategically and lead the organization in this evolutionary change.”

The new CEO will be tasked with challenging staff, government officials, funders, and others “to refuse to accept that HIV transmission is inevitable,” the posting says.

Among other duties, the nonprofit’s new leader will oversee fundraising, the leadership team, and services in locations around the city, including Strut, the new gay and bi men’s health center at 470 Castro Street. The center had been expected to open this month, but an opening date hasn’t been announced.
