Howe-Lewis Heading Global Lyme Alliance CEO Search

February 3, 2016 – Executive search firm Howe-Lewis International has been retained by the Global Lyme Alliance (GLA) to lead its search for a new chief executive officer.

In partnership with the board of directors, the CEO will focus on increasing visibility and awareness of GLA, funding cutting-edge research as well as public, medical, and government education programs. A vital priority will include identifying  and securing financial resources, both public and private, to achieve these goals.

The ideal candidate will have a track record of effective leadership, preferably in a successful health, human service, or other not-for-profit setting. The CEO will need to be a frontline fundraiser with exposure to marketing/branding/media relations as well as knowledge of best practices in the not-for-profit community.

The Global Lyme Alliance is dedicated to diagnosis, treatment, and education about Lyme and tick-borne diseases. It represents the merger of two of the largest organizations in the field — Lyme Research Alliance and the Tick-Borne Disease Alliance — and is committed to harnessing the expertise garnered by both over a combined 25 years.
