As the parent company of Colonial, Community Behavioral Health, Community First Pharmacy, and Partners in Prime, Community First Solutions touches the lives of more than 20,000 Butler County residents annually. Headquartered in Hamilton, Ohio, the organization is one of the leading providers of mental health and behavioral services in the region, the largest provider of home delivered meals in Butler County, the operator of two five-star senior living communities, and the founder of the second not-for-profit pharmacy in the nation. The organization also operates a commercial construction firm that has fueled much of the growth over the past 30 years while saving countless millions in general contractor fees. For 100 years its not-for-profit mission has been focused on providing quality care to individuals throughout the community.
The Board of Directors is seeking an innovative, collaborative and visionary leader with the gifts and energy to shepherd a strong leadership team in the strategic diversification and growth of this dynamic multi-service provider. The ideal candidate for this position will have successful leadership experience within a high quality multi-service provider setting and will be a highly visible and transparent leader with a high level of personal energy and leadership presence. The finalist candidate will also forge new relationships with the surrounding community, working closely with Community First Solutions’ neighbors and businesses to build on its current exceptional reputation. A Bachelor’s degree in business administration, health care administration, or related field is required (Master’s degree preferred). Commercial development and/or construction experience would be considered a plus.
