JOB POSTING – DEPUTY DIRECTOR OF BUSINESS OPERATIONS AND MARKETING
|COMPANY: Museum of Contemporary Art
||DEADLINE: Open until filled
|DEPARTMENT: Business Operations
||POSTED: October 25, 2013
|CATEGORY: Full Time, Exempt
||CONTACT: Christina Eagleeye-Wilson
The Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland unveiled its new home in October 2012 to rave reviews in national and global art and architectural circles. The new building was heralded as an icon for contemporary art in Northeast Ohio and a catalyst for the burgeoning neighborhood of Uptown in the University Circle area. The museum immediately began to broaden its reach and deepen its engagement across Northeast Ohio, and in its first 12 months of operations at the new location welcomed 56,000 visitors and increased its membership to over 1,200 households.
New businesses were launched in the new location with a change to the museum’s operating model to rely on earned income for a greater percentage of total revenue than ever in the museum’s history. The earned income lines that were launched in the new building (store, space rental and dining) performed well in their first 12 months and much was learned during that time period. All indications point to strong potential within the earned income lines that can be reaped by sound planning, business acumen and aggressive promotion.
The Deputy Director of Business Operations and Marketing position has been created with these opportunities in mind. This executive management position oversees the business operations of the museum, including all of its support services and facilities management, and is responsible for developing and growing earned income and audience share for the museum along objectives that have been set. The Deputy Director creates, executes and manages a strategic plan to strengthen awareness and reputation, increase attendance and grow earned income for the museum. The Deputy Director takes the lead in identifying and, alongside colleagues across the museum, leveraging opportunities for revenue enhancement. The Deputy Director oversees a broad range of functions that allow the museum to operate efficiently, meet its business model objectives, sustain a balanced budget each year and reach a growing and ever-changing audience base with the museum’s exhibitions and programs.
This executive manager focuses on setting reasonable yet ambitious goals for the museum’s earned income departments and is responsible for tracking all metrics associated with those departments as well as related functions, such as attendance, membership sales and visitor satisfaction with the museum experience. While tracking such metrics, this executive manager also shares them via regularly generated dashboards and scorecards and encourages their use in decision-making across the staff and board of directors.
This executive manager oversees the visitor services function of the museum to ensure that external promises delivered via the museum’s marketing and communications are delivered internally through exceptional visitor service and experiences within the museum’s building.
This executive manager works closely with the senior manager of finance at the museum and is continually evaluating the museum’s investments of time, personnel and dollars and analyzing these investments in terms of returns realized by the museum. He or she shares the analyses with the senior staff to provide context and basis for collaborative discussions and decisions.
This executive manager is a strong business leader with an entrepreneurial spirit and is a dynamic collaborator, working closely with the other senior managers to ensure all opportunities for earned income are leveraged throughout the work of curatorial, programming, marketing and development. This executive manager has the marketing and communications department in her/his management portfolio and, as such, supports the senior manager of marketing in the development of effective communications and promotions to grow audience share and earned income as well as to reach the objectives for audience engagement, artistic program reputation and contributed income growth led by other departments of the museum.
This executive manager is an adept communicator who translates the vision and initiatives from senior staff to the museum’s staff and contractors. S/he is constantly sharing what is heard, seen and experienced with the staff across the museum in order to spark new ideas, evolve thinking and decision making and constantly improve upon operations.
