About Appalachian Mountain Club
Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) is the nation’s longest serving conservation and recreation organization. From volunteers teaching essential outdoor skills, to public advocacy seeking to preserve and expand the spaces we love, AMC is the leading organization ensuring that people have the opportunity to be outdoors - now and for generations to come.
Founded in 1876, AMC has encouraged the involvement of all people in its mission and activities, through its membership, programs, policies, and procedures. As a complex 501(c)(3) organization, AMC’s operations span merchandising, membership, and hospitality and lodging. Looking ahead, AMC is working to become a net zero organization by 2050.
The Appalachian Mountain Club seeks an innovative leader to join their executive team in the organization’s senior financial position. Reporting to AMC’s President and CEO, Nicole Zussman, the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) will provide leadership and oversight in all matters pertaining to financial sustainability.
As a member of the 5-person Executive Team, the CFO will be a thought partner in the evolving strategic direction of AMC, develop and execute short and long-term financial strategies, and foster a high-performance, results-driven culture that develops leaders. The CFO will manage a 20-person team, leveraging best practices and managing transformation and growth for AMC’s Finance and Accounting Team, Risk Management, and IT.
