FaithLife Financial is a federally-regulated, fraternal insurance organization, whose mission is “protecting financial futures, living Christian values and building a better world”.
In order to fill anticipated future gaps on our Board of Directors over the next couple of years, our Board is looking for an individual who has proven Information Technology Leadership experience in positions such as CIO, CTO, or similar, to serve as Board Director. The ideal candidate will have provided organization oversight and leadership in the realm of Information Technology including such things as transformation to online sales (ideally for a life insurance company), development of digital strategy, cyber security issues, enterprise technology architecture and platforms, and wishes to become (or has been) a board director. FaithLife is undertaking a bold business transformation, and in addition to the technical IT experience, requires new board directors who have a mindset of innovation and transformation with a vision to deliver short-term results and achieving long-term sustainable growth. The ideal candidate will demonstrate currency in the fast-paced universe of digital technology.
We are looking for an individual who demonstrates a commitment to a Christian fraternal organization, who practices behaviours of an effective director (such as clear communication skills, prudent judgement, self-awareness, integrity, accountability, objectivity and affability), and who will help to balance the Board’s composition.
A Director is expected to attend all meetings and to actively serve on two Board Committees. Typically, a Director can expect to commit six to eight days per quarter in preparation for, and attending, meetings of the Board and Board Committees. The commitment is for up to a four-year term, subject to acceptable performance, renewable for up to twelve years maximum after which Directors must rotate off the Board. In accordance with regulatory and best practices, a condition of being a Director is receiving satisfactory background and reference checks and a confirmation vote from members. Directors receive an annual retainer. Candidates are required to be, or become, members of the fraternal organization.
