The goal of the executive assistant is to be a force-multiplier for our CEO. Done well, your job is to minimize distractions, to act as a gatekeeper, and to ensure that the CEO is focused on tasks that no one else in the organization can do.
Your time will be spent with the following activities:
Strategic Communication: Acting as the glue that holds the organization together by communicating and following up on strategic initiatives, and filling in the gaps where needed; comfortably communicating on behalf of CEO to external C-suite executives, internal associates, and everyone in between.
Executive Office Management: Managing all aspects of highly complex international business travel: Air/Ground/Lodging/Visas/Phone; printing calendars; drafting email correspondence on behalf of CEO; email inbox maintenance; maintaining and trouble-shooting office technology; submitting expense reports.
Board & Network Coordination: Interacting and developing relationships with the most important people in the network, and their respective teams; planning and attending Global Board meetings, Board Chair Gatherings, and International Selection Panels; taking ownership of the most VIP relationships in the network.
Calendaring & Coordination: Scheduling internal and external meetings and calls as well as personal appointments. Interacting with CEO’s family, and household staff to coordinate household alongside CEO; coordinating professional and family calendars.
Other Duties as Assigned: This is a “no job is too big or small” type of role, and requires someone “on the team” willing to do whatever is needed to support the CEO.
