Burbank Housing is the largest affordable housing developer in Sonoma County, managing over 2,800 rental units in 61 properties and serving a diverse client base of over 10,000 people.

Burbank Housing seeks a Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) who is highly skilled, principled, and engaged to assume the financial leadership and stewardship of this critical housing organization, and to partner with the CEO and spearhead its growth during a time when housing affordability in Sonoma County could not be more critical.

The CFO will provide financial leadership and management for Burbank’s organizational and portfolio growth, offer strategies for financing new real estate development, innovate repositioning and refinancing the existing rental property portfolio, cultivate and steward relationships with financial institutions and consultants, as well as serve as the financial liaison with the board of directors.

The ideal candidate will bring the following experience:

  • Ten years of senior level financial management experience with a focus on strategic business planning.
  • Eight years of broad-based business management experience.
  • Proven ability to manage the finances of an organization with a multi-million dollar budget.

  • Demonstrated ability to provide organizational leadership as a member of the senior management team; able to develop organizational capacity in financial function.
