PCI Seeking Candidates for New Executive Director

Partnership for a Connected Illinois (PCI), the state’s broadband initiative, is searching for a new executive director to lead the nonprofit high-speed internet advocacy group into the future.

“We’re looking for an organizational leader who understands the power of technology for economic, community, and individual development, and who has the capacity to build partnerships based on trust to implement Partnership of a Connected Illinois’ mission and sustain the organization,” said Charles Benton, Vice Chairman of PCI’s Board of Directors.

Drew Clark, PCI’s executive director since its inception in 2009, resigned this month to pursue a consulting practice devoted to broadband internet services on a national level.

A revised position description was approved at PCI’s bi-monthly board meeting on August 8, with the hope that a new executive director would be chosen in September for an approximate start date of October 1.

The new executive director of the Partnership for a Connected Illinois will report to the board of directors and have overall strategic and operational responsibility for PCI staff, programs, expansion and execution of its mission. The position will oversee the programmatic, development and financial functions of the organization’s operation and identify avenues for organizational sustainability by building on current programs.

The right individual for the job will be thoroughly committed to PCI’s mission. All candidates should have proven leadership and relationship management experience.
