VP of Corporate Social Responsibility and Foundation Executive Director
at Delta Dental
Delta Dental of Colorado (DDCO), a nonprofit with a mission to improve the oral health of the communities it serves, has more than 1.2 million members with a 98% retention rate. It insures more than 5,000 employer groups, tens of thousands of people who purchase dental benefits individually, and adults and children with embedded plans through medical partners. DDCO’s Foundation elevates the well-being of all Coloradans by advancing oral health equity. Its vision is that every Coloradan can have a healthy mouth because the necessary resources are attainable, regardless of life circumstances.
DDCO seeks a proven leader who has tremendous enthusiasm for health and the impact that improved oral health can have on quality of life. This person is excited about working to achieve mission success for both DDCO and the Foundation. This individual demonstrates, either through career or volunteer service, a life-long dedication to improving the human condition. The ideal candidate must exhibit success in collaborating with a wide variety of stakeholders. Experience in convening diverse groups of people to find solutions to difficult issues in a collegial, transparent and highly participatory manner is essential. This experience may have been gained in the corporate, philanthropic, nonprofit and/or public sectors.
Candidates must have extensive experience and exceptional skills in oral and written communications and enjoy being the face of an organization. DDCO seeks a leader who values the contribution of each Board and staff member and who understands how organizational culture contributes to accelerating progress on outcomes. Participation in the life of the community in which s/he lives and/or works as evidenced by a high level of civic involvement, public service and volunteerism is expected.
Career experience and knowledge of oral health delivery, public health issues and health systems will be highly valued but is not a prerequisite.

Important personal attributes include strategic astuteness, critical thinking skills, dynamic personal presence, natural optimism, humility, good listening skills and a sense of humor.
