Job description:

HealthPartners is seeking an accomplished leader to direct HealthPartners’ fundraising initiatives, marketing and communications strategies, and its operations in Quebec as its next Vice President, Business Development and Marketing. Fluently bilingual, the Vice President will be a key member of HealthPartners’ Senior Leadership Team and will play a lead role in the overall direction of the organization.

Reporting to the CEO, the Vice President will be responsible for developing and implementing a revenue development strategy, including a focus on maintaining and growing existing accounts as well as new business development. Engaged in high-level strategy and looked to for advice and counsel within the organization, the Vice President will oversee all marketing and communications functions for HealthPartners, including the transition to a more digital-focused and digital savvy organization. As a fluently bilingual leader, the Vice President will also direct a small team in Quebec that raises funds for the Quebec divisions of its national health charities. HealthPartners adopted a new strategic plan in 2020 that sees a focus on building a strong brand, increasing its focus on mental health, growing and diversifying revenue, and ensuring the organization has the foundational building blocks for future success. The Vice President will be responsible for driving two of these critical functions.
