About Institute for Market Transformation
The Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) is a trusted, non-partisan nonprofit organization that works to ensure that everyone in the U.S. benefits from high-performing buildings in all facets of their lives. IMT bridges the intersection of business, government, and community priorities to spotlight business practices and advance public policy to improve U.S. buildings. IMT does this by co-creating and deploying public policy and business practices that drive widespread market action toward improving how they collectively build, design, and operate the spaces where people live, work, learn, connect, and play.
IMT provides actionable resources, market analysis, and hands-on technical assistance to transform how building performance is defined, valued, and acted upon. IMT seeks to center community voices and connect people across sectors to catalyze lasting change in how buildings serve people and communities. Policies that IMT helped design or implement now touch more than 10 billion square feet of commercial and multifamily space across the United States, and IMT is currently involved in several efforts to increase its supportive reach.
- Public Policy: Create and implement next generation building performance policies to decarbonize buildings and ensure equitable benefits at scale.
- Utilities & the Grid: Connect community, government, real estate, and utility decision makers to improve service delivery and increase building performance investments.
- Business Practices: Create business practices that help real estate work in partnership with stakeholders to produce higher-performing, more-efficient buildings.
- Community Engagement: Advocate for policymaking that prioritizes community accessibility and engagement.

IMT seeks as its next Executive Director (ED) an engaging, thoughtful leader who will elevate the organization and its experts in service of IMT’s climate and social justice mission. Reporting directly to the Board of Directors, the ED is responsible for the organization’s reputation, cultural health, financial standing, and strategic direction. The ED will lead the implementation of IMT’s 2024-2027 strategic plan to decarbonize buildings and strengthen the equity and livability of American communities.
The ED must be able to both think at a big-picture level and execute at a tactical level, working closely with colleagues in a collegial, intellectually rigorous, leading-edge workplace. The ED must balance respect for IMT’s nimble, entrepreneurial culture with the desire among management and staff for structure, accountability, and performance.
The ED will need to act as an external ambassador for this vital work while maintaining a strong internal organization as an empathetic, transparent, and people-oriented team leader. The ED may choose to work from the D.C. office. The ED will oversee a talented team of 35+ individuals with four direct reports (the Managing Directors of Operations, Advancement, and Programs and a representative in the White House) in a predominantly remote/hybrid environment.
