Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (PPNNE) is the largest reproductive health care provider and policy advocate in northern New England with 21 health centers across Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. PPNNE is a 501(c)(3) organization with a $31 million operating budget and 250 committed staff dedicated to providing care to 45,000 patients annually. PPNNE provides, promotes, and protects access to reproductive health care and sexuality education so that all people, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, age, race, income or insurance status can make voluntary choices about their reproductive and sexual health.


As PPNNE continues to respond to a dynamic and changing healthcare environment, a search is underway for a visionary and transformational Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Reporting to the Board of Directors, the CEO provides strategic direction and leadership to execute the organization’s mission and vision, represents and speaks for the organization and its work, and oversees the business operations of PPNNE.

Dynamic internal and external factors make for an exciting role during a pivotal time, offering the opportunity for major impact and meaningful contribution to the short and long-term success of the organization. The CEO will lead the organization through a significant organizational transition while bringing the vision of equity to the forefront. Given the changing healthcare and political environment, PPNNE seeks a CEO who is experienced in high-level management of organizational change. Among the major operations, changes are the recent unionization of part of the workforce, the creation of a centralized health network with fourteen other Planned Parenthood affiliates, and a rapidly changing landscape in sexual and reproductive healthcare and access to legal abortion. The CEO will provide strategic direction and guidance in collaboration with the senior leadership team and the board of directors to successfully respond to and leverage these changes to advance the mission of PPNNE.

The CEO oversees the work and board management for three 501 (c)(4) organizations (Action Funds) in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. The Action Funds serve as leaders in their region directing public policy; educating voters, elected leaders and candidates; driving campaign and electoral activity and building a movement to advance reproductive rights and freedoms.

Additional responsibilities of the CEO include effectively representing and promoting the organization as the trusted source for healthcare and information; overseeing the organization’s fiscal operations and fundraising strategies; supporting the board in its governance role; and developing and maintaining relationships and partnerships with stakeholders, policymakers, organizations, and the public. This role does require some travel, primarily between Burlington VT, Concord NH, Portland ME and intermittent travel to national meetings.
