Chief Strategy and Growth Officer

The Organization

The National Council’s vision is to make mental wellbeing, including recovery from substance use challenges, a reality for everyone. Despite overwhelming need, nearly 30 million people across the U.S. do not have access to comprehensive, high-quality, affordable mental health and substance use care when they need it. 

Founded in 1969, the National Council for Mental Wellbeing is a membership organization that drives policy and social change on behalf of nearly 3,200 mental health and substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery organizations and the more than 10 million children, adults and families they serve. We advocate for policies to ensure equitable access to high-quality services and supports. We build the capacity of mental health and substance use treatment organizations. And we promote greater understanding of mental wellbeing as a core component of comprehensive health and health care. Through our Mental Health First Aid program we have trained more than 2.8 million people in the U.S. to identify, understand and respond to signs and symptoms of mental health and substance use challenges. 

The National Council is growing rapidly to meet this moment; both our budget ($77M) and number of passionate staff (270+) have grown more than 50% since 2020. 

The Opportunity

The Chief Strategy and Growth Officer (CSGO), in this newly configured role, will play a critical role in the National Council’s achievement of its mission, vision and goals.

In collaboration with the strategic leadership team — Chief Executive Officer, Chief of Staff, Chief Program Officer, Chief of Operations and Transformation, Chief Diversity Officer and Chief People Officer — the CSGO will seek out opportunities that allow the National Council to shape and influence the future of Mental Health and Substance Use (MH/SU) and integrated care – and the field providing that care — in the United States. They will partner with leading practitioners in MH/SU, policymakers, researchers, advocates, public and private donors and others to increase awareness and funding for innovative and effective programs.

Chief Operating Officer

The Organization

The National Quality Forum (NQF) is a not-for-profit, nonpartisan, membership-based organization that works to catalyze improvements in healthcare quality, outcomes, equity and affordability.

Formed in 1999 based on recommendations from the President’s Commission on Consumer Protection and Quality in the Health Care Industry, NQF has long served as the nation’s steward for health care quality measures – charged with determining which measures are scientifically and clinically sound for use in public and private sector programs. Today, roughly 420 NQF-endorsed measures are used in more than 20 federal programs providing coverage to more than 120 million Americans and by private sector payers nationwide to improve the quality and affordability of healthcare. Additionally, NQF convenes public and private sector stakeholders annually in processes that: (1) advise the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services about which measures to incorporate into its value-based payment programs; and (2) promote alignment among public and private sector payers in their use of measures for physician and hospital payment and to inform consumer choice of providers and health plans.

The Opportunity

Engaging as a true partner to the CEO and across the organization, the COO will create the conditions for excellence in execution of both NQF’s core work as steward of the nation’s portfolio of quality measures and NQF’s growth and diversification of products and initiatives serving public and private sector efforts to improve the quality, affordability and outcomes of U.S. healthcare. Specifically, the COO will lead the development and use of next-generation tools and systems for operations, capacity planning and financial management. They will oversee and mentor a team (currently ~30) across critical functional areas: Finance, Information Technology, U.S. Government Contract Compliance, Project Management Office (PMO), and Enterprise Operations.

This is an outstanding opportunity for a seasoned, strategic and relationship-oriented leader and manager with a proven track record in government contracting as well as supporting organizational growth and revenue diversification.
