South Brooklyn Industrial Development Corporation Seeks Executive Director

See full posting here.

We are proud to offer an exciting opportunity to lead an organization that works at the intersection of economic development, workforce development, direct service, and advocacy in three of the most dynamic neighborhoods in New York City. The Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Development Corporation (SBIDC) was founded in 1978 as a business membership organization to advocate for, and provide technical assistance to, small businesses in the waterfront neighborhoods of Sunset Park, Red Hook and Gowanus. SBIDC continues to manage the city’s largest Industrial Business Zone. In addition, over the past five years, SBIDC has expanded its mission to help neighborhood residents secure and maintain good jobs, often in the same neighborhood businesses we have served for nearly 40 years. The organization has grown substantially in the past 5 years thanks to an entrepreneurial staff and board of directors. We are looking for an executive director to continue to grow the ways in which we help businesses and residents alike in Southwest Brooklyn in financially and organizationally sustainable ways.
