Mule Deer Foundation Accepting Applications for President/CEO Position

Salt Lake City, UT: The Mule Deer Foundation is accepting applications for the position of President & CEO. The successful candidate will replace Miles Moretti who is retiring after 14 years at the helm of the organization. The job description is available on the MDF website and applications will be accepted until March 31, 2020. The successful applicant will start in the new position on September 1, 2020 to provide one month of transition before Moretti’s official retirement date.

“The Mule Deer Foundation has come a long way in the 14 years that Miles has been leading the organization. We wish him well in his retirement and also look forward to further growth under a new President & CEO,” commented Art Reese, chairman of the MDF board of directors. “The board hopes that there will be broad interest in this rare opportunity to lead one of the country’s top wildlife conservation organizations and steer it into the future.”

The Mule Deer Foundation has experienced staff and passionate volunteers, and the new President & CEO will work with them to implement the board-developed strategic plan. This will include the strategic and visionary leadership to build membership, increase donor support, and continue MDF’s important role on state and national policy development. The President & CEO position will require a strong background in wildlife conservation and management and be able to develop partnerships with other wildlife agencies and non-governmental organizations. The position will also require continued oversight in producing the Western Hunting & Conservation Expo.

“We look forward to reviewing many applications for this position and are confident that we will be able to identify an individual who can carry on Miles’ legacy while also building on his success to take the organization to the next level,” concluded MDF board vice-chair, Aaron Oelger.
