Knox Heritage

The Executive Director of Knox Heritage will take the reins of a highly impactful, high-profile preservation organization in Knoxville, Tennessee, with strong programming supported by an engaged board, broad donor base, and enthusiastic volunteer force. The departing founding director has guided the work of Knox Heritage for 15-years, creating a local preservation ethic embraced by Knoxvillians. As the face and voice of Knox Heritage, the next Executive Director will be responsible for day-to-day management of the organization as well as communication with the membership and local partners. The successful candidate will be a change agent who can articulate the impact of Knox Heritage in a one-on-one meeting, in front of large groups, in a tweet or in an op-ed article. An experienced non-profit manager with a demonstrated passion for preservation and a proven track record of fundraising will best meet the candidate profile. Knox Heritage is headquartered in Historic Westwood, a historically significant Knoxville home and a major save for the organization. Knox Heritage employs three full-time and three part-time staff members. Effectively maximizing and developing staff is paramount to ongoing organizational sustainability. Preservation programming, saving buildings and revitalizing communities through real estate preservation efforts are hallmarks of Knox Heritage.
