Website The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture
The Sheen Center aspires to present the heights and depths of human expression in thought and culture, featuring humankind as fully alive. At The Sheen Center, we proclaim that life is worth living, especially when we seek to deepen, explore and challenge ourselves, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, intellectually, artistically, and spiritually.
The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture (The Sheen Center) was established by Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York, in 2015. The Sheen Center is a forum to present film, theater, arts, and music in a state-of-the-art complex that nourishes the Catholic audience and engages the general public.
The Sheen Center seeks an entrepreneurial, visionary, and strategic leader to serve as Executive Director. S/he will bring creativity and experience to advance the mission of The Sheen Center as well as the ability to engage participation from all levels, creating and fostering an atmosphere of excitement and energy. The ideal candidate will possess leadership abilities, including effective motivation, mentoring, and team building: the talent to leverage team members’ existing capacity and strengthen performance while maintaining best practices, camaraderie, and shared accountability.
The successful candidate will have a demonstrated track record in identifying, cultivating, soliciting, stewarding, and securing philanthropic support in an environment where the prospective donor constituency is not immediately obvious. With the goal of increasing and diversifying philanthropic support, the Executive Director will report to the Board of Directors and work collaboratively and closely with the Archdiocese of New York. The successful candidate must possess a strong work ethic, focused energy, drive, and passion for the mission of The Sheen Center, and dedication to the values of the Catholic Church.
S/he will serve as The Sheen Center’s spokesperson: communicate clearly and persuasively to increase visibility and credibility of the Sheen Center, inspire support, and promote public awareness about the achievements and impact of The Sheen Center.
The Sheen Center has retained Freeman Philanthropic Services, LLC (FPS) to assist on this important executive recruitment. Please send confidential inquiries and applications directly to FPS via e-mail at SheenCenter@glfreeman.com.
