Fargo Moorhead (ND) Flood Diversion Authority - Executive Director
(Added 3/1/2018)

EXCITING OPPORTUNITY

The Metro Flood Diversion Authority (MFDA), a political subdivision of the State of North Dakota, is seeking an innovative, dynamic leader to oversee the administration of this historic flood diversion construction project.

PROJECT OPERATIONS

The purpose of the FM Diversion Project is to significantly reduce the effects of a 100-year flood event. The initial estimated cost of the project is $2.2 billion from the following funding sources:

PROJECT GOVERNANCE

The member entities of the project - the cities of Fargo, ND and Moorhead, MN; Cass County, ND and Clay County, MN; and, the Cass County Joint Water Resource District - have entered into a comprehensive joint powers agreement that forms the Flood Diversion Board of Authority. The Board consists of 13 members representing the stakeholders, who are appointed by the individual member entities. Together with the new Executive Director, the Board will provide strategic leadership, planning, and policy guidance to assist in implementing the project.

In addition, the metropolitan area offers exemplary public and private K-12 educational opportunities and several major institutions of higher education, including North Dakota State University (the land grant university for North Dakota), Minnesota State University Moorhead, Concordia College, and Minnesota State Community & Technical College. The Fargo-Moorhead area offers a quality of life that is more affordable, and more accessible, than other regions of the country. Additionally, the F-M area serves as a gateway to Minnesota Lakes Country and abundant outdoor recreational opportunities. An easy 3.5-hour drive east of Fargo-Moorhead is the Minneapolis-Saint Paul (MN) metropolitan area, which is home to world class performing arts, professional sports teams, cultural events, and major retail centers, including the Mall of America.

THE AREA

The population of the Fargo- Moorhead metropolitan area is more than 200,000, with significant population growth and economic prosperity on the horizon for these twin cities. This is due in large part to a very low unemployment rate (consistently below the national average), an affordable cost of living, and a robust, diversified local economy. While agriculture is still prominent in the local economy, the area has also become an important regional center for other professions, including technology, higher education, medicine, manufacturing, and retail. The Fargo-Moorhead area offers a quality of life that is more affordable, and more accessible, than other regions of the country.

THE POSITION

The Executive Director is the chief executive officer of the Metro Flood Diversion Authority, reporting directly and responsible to the Diversion Authority (DA) Board for the efficient and effective day-to-day administration and leadership of the FM Metro Area Flood Control Diversion Project. This is a new position that will function without staff in the near term and will be expected to shape the administrative vision and organizational approach for the Diversion Authority in the future.

Primary duties will include:

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE

The new Executive Director is an accomplished, visionary, strategic leader who ideally possesses:

EDUCATION/EXPERIENCE

A Bachelor’s degree in Business or Public Administration, or related field and 10+ years of experience at an equal or prerequisite level for the responsibilities and duties of the position are expected. MBA/MPA is preferred, but not required.

COMPENSATION/BENEFITS

The annual salary range for this position starts at $150,000.00 but is competitive and negotiable dependent on the qualifications of the chosen candidate. Salary will be complemented by an attractive benefits package.

APPLICATION AND SELECTION PROCEDURE

This position is open until filled with first review of resumes Friday, April 6, 2018. To be considered for this excellent career opportunity, please immediately submit your resume (including months and years of employment) with cover letter, and six work-related references (including a range of direct reports, peers, and supervisors) to: https://secure.cpshr.us/ escandidate/JobDetail?ID=221
