Judson University is an evangelical Christian university that represents the Church at work in higher education, equipping students to be fully developed, responsible persons who glorify God by the quality of their personal relationships, their work, and their citizenship within the community, the nation and the world. Founded in 1913 as the undergraduate arm of Northern Theological Seminary, Judson became an independent entity in the 1960s. The University has expanded greatly over the years and is currently seeking a Senior Vice President of Business Affairs and Chief Financial Officer.
The SVP, Business Affairs and CFO will be responsible for providing vision, leadership, planning and coordination for the fiscal resources and financial and administrative functions of the University. This position will report directly to the President of the University, Dr. Gene Crume, and will work closely with the other members of the President’s Leadership Team, the Board of Trustees, faculty, staff and students.
The successful SVP, Business Affairs and CFO candidate will come from a similarly complex organization, preferably with 10+ years of progressively complex and relevant leadership experience in higher education. A Bachelor’s degree in Accounting, Finance, Business Administration or related field is required, with a CPA or MBA preferred. As this position is located in Elgin, Illinois, the candidate must live in, or be willing to relocate to, the Greater Chicago Area.
