DESCRIPTION
Brooklyn Greenway Initiative (BGI), a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to the establishment, development and long-term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, is seeking a well-qualified candidate to become its first Executive Director. The Executive Director will be the leader of the organization, which has a $500,000 operating budget and five employees: three maintenance and two office staff. This is a unique opportunity for a transformational leader to evolve the organization into its new phase of stewardship. With an energetic and growing Board, the organization is primed to leverage its successes along the Brooklyn waterfront and become a national example for public space providing health, habitat, and resiliency.

Founded in 2004, BGI works with community, business, and governmental partners to create and fulfill a comprehensive vision for the Greenway. The organization’s founders, staff and Board have successfully moved the concept of a landscaped pathway along Brooklyn’s dynamic waterfront from concept to reality. The project enjoys broad community support. Six miles of the Greenway and a 1.7 acre public space are actively used, demonstrating the potential and need for a full build-out. Four additional segments are currently in capital design and engineering and planning is advancing for the remainder of the Greenway.
