the Beyond Vision logoWith an unemployment rate of approximately 70% among people who are blind in the U.S., Beyond Vision’s mission is to create meaningful employment opportunities, demonstrating the untapped potential within the community of people who are blind or visually impaired and serving as a leader in manufacturing and other services. Beyond Vision is a 501(c)(3) self-funded, not-for-profit entity currently employing 107 people with the mission to enrich the lives of people who are blind through the dignity of work valued by customers and the community.

After nearly two decades of growth, Beyond Vision is in a healthy financial position with the ability to continue to serve the community as a person-first employer, keeping visually impaired employees at the forefront. The organization is looking for its next leader to grow the manufacturing and services business lines through strategy-driven revenue diversification.

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the President and CEO will provide strategic, visionary leadership to grow and strengthen the organization. The President and CEO will translate strategic priorities into impactful programs and revenue-generating initiatives, all while serving as the organization’s ambassador to diverse stakeholders. The President and CEO will provide general management of organizational resources and personnel, and ensure the effective deployment of financial, social, and political capital. He/She will align Board members, stakeholders, organizational values, aspirations, and programs/services with Beyond Vision’s mission and vision.
