San Francisco AIDS Foundation Continues Search for CEO

Executive Search Firm Egon Zehnder Leads Effort

SAN FRANCISCO, November 24, 2015—San Francisco AIDS Foundation announced today that executive search firm Egon Zehnder has published a job description for the organization’s CEO. Described as strategic and high-profile on the local and national levels, the role is accountable for overseeing program operations, maintaining organizational visibility, fundraising, building effective community partnerships, and promoting health policies that support prevention efforts and those living with HIV.

“The foundation is at the forefront of HIV prevention and care and we are confident that our partners at Egon Zehnder will be able to identify a visionary leader who is up to the task,” said Michael Kidd, chair of the San Francisco AIDS Foundation board of directors. “In order to attract top talent, we ask for the community’s help to spread the word.”

The CEO will manage a senior leadership team who oversees a diverse set of programs and services, comprehensive philanthropy, public affairs, advocacy and community engagement, finance, human resources and organizational operations.

Neil Giuliano, who has served as CEO since December 2010, notified the board of directors in August that he will depart the organization after five years of service. Giuliano’s last day as CEO is next month. The board of directors will appoint an interim CEO to serve between Giuliano’s departure and beginning of the new CEO’s term.
