Chief Executive Officer, NewCo: Inland Press and Southern Newspaper Publishers Associatio...

The newsprint industry has seen a significant change in the last decade. There has been a seismic shift in the newspaper business model and long-held practices have been upended. The Inland Press Association and the Southern Newspaper Publishers Association are in the process of merging to form a new association with a virtual staff designed to meet the critical need for an industry association that provides voice, focus and function equal to the challenges of this new reality.

A search has begun for a new CEO who will be the voice and face of the newspaper industry. The CEO of the new association will have the overall strategic and operational responsibility for staffing, programming, managing and achieving the mission of NewCo (working acronym for this organization). The CEO will work with association and foundation boards to devise and implement strategies that achieve the organizations’ goals and ensure that the nonprofits’ fiscal, marketing, human resource, technology, programming and operational objectives are effectively implemented.


Successful candidates will have at least 10 years of senior management experience, a bachelor’s degree, and a mission-driven perspective. Experience, appreciation for or excitement about the importance of the newspaper industry would be a plus.
