Putting fish back in rivers

Since 1977, the Columbia River Inter Tribal Fish Commission (CRITFC) and its member tribes (Nez Perce, Umatilla, Warm Springs and Yakama) have been working together to put fish back in rivers.

We seek a dynamic and skilled financial leader to be our next Chief Financial Officer. The CFO will provide strategic management for the finance and accounting functions of one of Portland’s top nonprofit organizations. The CFO will serve as a close partner to the Executive Director and will have broad responsibility for CRITFC’s success. This is an excellent opportunity for a finance and accounting leader to make a step up in their career and help the four member tribes’ salmon restoration efforts. Prior CFO experience is not required.

With 130+ employees, CRITFC is a well established organization that is on strong and stable financial footing. CRITFC is a subdivision of the four member tribes with a financial structure that is complex and interesting, with programs across five office sites in Oregon and Idaho. The challenge for the next CFO will be to understand CRITFC’s role in the four tribes’ success and recommend updates to CRITFC’s finance and accounting practices that will enhance the smooth functioning of an already successful nonprofit. This is a leadership role that requires someone who carries high level finance responsibilities yet also relishes the opportunity to dive into the details to support their staff and ensure that financial systems are running smoothly.

CRITFC is located in Portland, OR. Relocation assistance will be offered. Starting pay for this role is up to $160,000.
