San Jose, CA

Executive Director

m/Oppenheim Executive Search is assisting Cancer CAREpoint in the search for a compassionate and engaging Executive Director to drive transformative change that results in more clients served in Silicon Valley. As part of the search process, we are reaching out to the community for suggestions and nominations.

Located in San Jose, Cancer CAREpoint (CCP) offers a welcoming and compassionate environment for people living with and living beyond cancer, their families, and caregivers. It provides psycho-social services, filling the void beyond medical/clinical treatment, and offers counseling and support groups, exercise and movement, nutrition guidance, wig services, and other wellness services. Approximately 10,000 Silicon Valley residents are diagnosed with cancer each year, with thousands more living as cancer survivors. Because of this, there will always be those who need emotional, practical, and psychological support to get through one of the most difficult experiences of their lives. This year CCP is expected to serve 2,000 clients.

CCP is not limited by imagination, and needs to create a new vision and strategy that meets people where they are, and reaches further into underserved communities.  The organization has a budget of $1.8M, a staff of eight and a 15-member board of directors. Almost ten years after its founding, CCP’s ethos and services are highly respected and has gained significant goodwill in the community. The Executive Director will build on this as an effective and authentic advocate, ambassador and fundraiser. The complete position description may be found here.
