Successful Chief Investment Officer search completed for local nonprofit – April 2019

LymanDoran has completed a successful search for The Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations (“The Foundations”), a local nonprofit with roots in Saint Paul and partners across the state. The Foundations represent Minnesota’s largest community foundation and the partner of choice for thousands of donors, nonprofits and community organizations that are working to address some of the biggest problems facing Minnesota communities, and it is resolutely focused on its strategic goals of advancing equity, strengthening communities and broadening philanthropic expression. With the recent departure of its Chief Investment Officer, The Foundations engaged LymanDoran to recruit a candidate with experience working in institutional investment management with a foundation, endowment, pension fund, and/or large-scale family office, have a proven passion for philanthropy, be an outstanding relationship builder, internally and externally, and possess a high degree of emotional intelligence.

With dual reporting to the Chief Financial Officer and President & Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Investment Officer will be a key member of the executive leadership team, provide leadership to The Foundations’ investment strategy, ensure effective manager due diligence and monitoring and oversee portfolio management.

In addition to leading the search, LymanDoran will provide onboarding support to the successful candidate and hiring team.
