The Presidio Trust is seeking a Director of Marketing and Communications who will lead, direct and oversee the organization’s Marketing and Communications Department.
The Presidio Trust is an innovative federal agency that stewards and shares the beauty, history, and wonder of the Presidio of San Francisco with everyone forever. We’re public servants from many disciplines working toward our triple bottom line – welcoming all people and protecting the planet, fueled by the performance of successful park businesses that earn the money that keeps the Presidio open, beautiful, and free.
The Presidio is truly unique among America’s parks. Long an Army post, today it’s part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the most visited urban national park in the country. It’s a public park and a place where people live and work. And unlike other national parks, the Presidio Trust manages the Presidio with limited taxpayer dollars, funding the park by repurposing historic buildings as award-winning museums, restaurants, hotels, gyms, offices, shops, event venues, and homes.
Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, the Director of Marketing & Communications provides the overall strategic vision and leadership for the marketing and communications department responsible for marketing, agency and park brand, internal and external communications, public relations, research & insights, and partnerships to advance the Trust’s mission as an urban national park site and maintain financial self-sufficiency. This position leads departmental staff, outside contractors and consulting firms to deliver impactful programs that directly advance the organization’s strategic goals and enhance the overall value of the brand. This Director will drive progress by leading cross-functionally at all levels across the agency and with partner organizations. The position personally and through their subordinates manage key organizational relationships with local, national and international media, business and community leaders, destination marketing organizations, tenants and residents. This role is central in the Trust’s effort to welcome and engage a broad cross-section of visitors and customers to the Presidio and promote the park as well as the business lines (residential, commercial, hospitality and golf) and ensure agency and park brand and reputational integrity.
Our ideal candidate is a values-driven, experienced, servant leader with a passion for purpose-driven marketing and communications in service to the mission of the Presidio Trust.
This is a full-time position with benefits and a starting pay range for FY24 of $181,879 to $204,656. The starting base salary is dependent on the experience and qualifications of the candidate. Applications received by January 10, 2024 will receive first consideration.
