Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago Initiates Search for Executive Director

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, February 7, 2019 – The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Chicago today announced that it is accepting applications for the new position of Executive Director. Interested candidates can find a detailed job description here.

Reporting directly to Metropolitan Nathanael, the Executive Director will be responsible for overseeing the administration, programs and strategic plan of the Metropolis. Other key areas of responsibilities include development, communications and marketing, and community outreach.

“Made possible by a Hellenic Foundation matching grant, adding an Executive Director to our team is an important step in promoting our mission and ushering in a new era of growth and change at the Metropolis,” said His Eminence Metropolitan Nathanael. “The Executive Director will introduce dedicated, professional skills and capabilities to address the Metropolis’ needs and ensure our effectiveness in key functional areas.”
