Valley Partnership seeks new president and CEO

Valley Partnership announced that Richard Hubbard stepped down from his eight-year post as president and CEO of the advocacy group. The terms of Hubbard’s resignation are effective immediately, said Cecilia Riviere, Director of Partner Services for Valley Partnership. There will be no acting president and CEO while a subcommittee of board members select Hubbard’s replacement.

“We are thankful that Richard served Valley Partnership as our president and CEO for over eight years through both good times and bad. Working alongside Richard was a pleasure. Our attention is now shifting to the future of the organization. We are beginning the search to find a replacement to not only lead Valley Partnership but also carry forward the positive and exciting momentum we have,” said Valley Partnership Chairman of the Board Doug Leventhal.

With Hubbard’s departure, Valley Partnership is now seeking an inspired leader to head the organization in its mission as the Valley of the Sun’s premier advocacy group for responsible development.

The ideal candidate will possess the ability to lead a large, diverse non-profit association, with experience in government relations/advocacy and a strong working knowledge of the Greater Phoenix real estate community. Resumes may be submitted by e-mail to holly@thepeopleperspective.com. For a job summary and position requirements, please visit the Valley Partnership website at www.valleypartnership.org. Submissions must be made on or before close of business on January 16, 2015 to be considered.
