The Foote School, an independent day school of 475 boys and girls in grades K-9 located in New Haven, Connecticut on a wooded site of 17.8 acres near Yale University, seeks a new Business Manager/Chief Financial Officer (CFO). We seek an experienced and seasoned professional with demonstrated financial, management and interpersonal skills to join this vibrant community as CFO. Collaborating with the Head of School, the Board of Trustees, staff and faculty, the CFO will manage the financial and non-academic administrative aspects of the school, including campus operations and human resources, and will possess the highest level of integrity, ethical standards and a strong work ethic.
The School’s 47,500-volume library is at the heart of Foote, and the School’s campus features lower- and middle-school buildings, a black-box theater, an art and music facility, two regulation-sized playing fields, and a state-of-the-art Science and Technology Building completed in 2012. Students of color comprise thirty-five percent of the student body, and Foote is committed to a supportive and creative learning environment that embraces a diverse community of students, faculty and staff. The endowment currently stands just below $10M, and the annual operating budget for 2015–2016 is $13.5M.
