    Forever Balboa Park seeks a visionary President and CEO

    Balboa Park is one of the most visited parks in California and the nation, and the historic crown jewel of San Diego. Forever Balboa Park is a newly created organization resulting from the merger of the park’s two largest philanthropic support organizations, Friends of Balboa Park and Balboa Park Conservancy. The new President and CEO is poised to play a pivotal role with wide latitude to shape and drive the success of Forever Balboa Park. The sky is the limit to shepherd Forever Balboa Park into its next stage of development while raising the park’s national profile, enhancing the visitor experience, and establishing a sustainable operations model for a world-class, 21st century botanical garden and park.

    The President and CEO must be equally a visionary, diplomat, fundraiser, conservationist, and community leader who is influential beyond the confines of the park. The ideal candidate may come from a variety of career pathways but will demonstrate a passion for public parks while exemplifying a servant-leader approach to taking Balboa Park to the next level. Critical to success will be humility, diplomacy, and flexibility, as well as being a creative thinker, a willing listener and an excellent communicator. Strong executive leadership skills, paired with a collaborative and results-oriented approach, are essential.


    The President and CEO position will be based out of the organization’s headquarters located in San Diego.


    This is a regular, full-time, exempt position. We offer a competitive compensation package; benefits include paid time off, medical/dental insurance, long- and short-term disability insurance, life insurance, tax-deferred annuity and contribution retirement plan. Relocation assistance will be offered if necessary.

    Start Date

    Early 2022.

    To Apply

    Interested candidates should apply via email by sending a cover letter describing their qualifications that match the position criteria and what they will bring to the role, along with a resume, to with the subject line “Forever Balboa Park, President and CEO Search.”
