The Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration (AFTD), based in Radnor, PA, is seeking applicants for the newly-created position of CFO. Established in 2002, AFTD is a globally recognized nonprofit devoted to curing and preventing frontotemporal degeneration, the most common dementia for people under age 60, as well as to improving the quality of life for those affected. Having hired its first full-time employee in 2009, AFTD has grown rapidly to a staff of over fifteen, with a robust board of directors, highly respected medical advisory council, and national network of volunteers. In 2016, AFTD co-sponsored the 10th International Conference on FTD and hosted the 2nd World FTD Awareness Week. The organization provides support to thousands of patients and caregivers through various programs and information while directing over half of its $6M+ budget toward grants that drive scientific research in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of FTD.
Due to continued, fast growth, AFTD will augment the senior leadership team with this essential position. Reporting to the CEO and supporting the board of directors, the CFO will lead all finance, accounting, and administrative functions in the organization, including responsibility for:
- Defining and implementing policies and procedures to support AFTD’s continued growth.
- Augmenting AFTD’s existing practices by continuing to build streamlined, effective financial and operational processes and systems.
- Playing a central role in scaling growth through resource management, project planning, staffing, and organizational development.
- Supervising and collaborating with a small, internal operations team and select external consultants.
