m/Oppenheim Associates is assisting GeoHazards International (GHI) in Menlo Park, CA in the search for a new President and Chief Executive Officer. For more information, please review the complete Position Description.

For more than 25 years, GHI has been helping the world’s most vulnerable communities prepare before natural disasters strike. Earthquakes, tsunamis, and landslides are thousands of times more lethal in developing countries. GHI works with local engineers, scientists, government officials, builders, and other community groups to build disaster resilience. Projects have prepared hospitals to function in crises; enhanced schoolchildren’s safety; trained professionals in technical solutions; reduced people’s exposure and vulnerability to hazards; and enabled communities to respond to disasters.

Dr. Brian E. Tucker, the President and Founder, is retiring. GHI’s Board of Trustees seeks a visionary and practical leader to develop a strategy to increase GHI’s impact, pursue a sustainable funding model focused on grants and donations, and increase awareness of the organization’s work.

Based in Menlo Park, CA, GHI employs a staff of 16 in the U.S., India, Bhutan, Nepal and Haiti. It is governed by a 15-member Board of Trustees, and has a current annual operating budget of $1.4M.
