General Manager

The Carlisle Group Fredericksburg Full-Time
Apply Now

The Carlisle Group is pleased to be conducting a retained search with a new grocery organization coming to Fredericksburg, Virginia. We are seeking their first General Manager (CEO).

Fredericksburg Food Co-op is a start-up grocery store in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Located halfway between Richmond, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., Fredericksburg is a vibrant community with a university, a hospital system, a major league baseball farm team, a significant history, and a growing, diverse population.

The General Manager will be the first full-time employee of the Co-op and will have a unique opportunity to make a huge impact, by hiring an excellent staff, building great relationships with local producers and suppliers, and helping expand the community involvement work of the all-volunteer Board of Directors.

The Fredericksburg Co-op won the “Best of the Best" award at the 2019 Up & Coming Conference. Member growth has been strong and consistent at nearly one new member a day. Both financing and site location activities of the Co-op are very near completion. We hope for a Grand Opening in early 2020. There is no time to lose.

The General Manager will be responsible for all operational aspects of the Co-op. This includes all major goals of our “Triple Bottom Line" business model (people, planet, profits). The General Manager will embrace the Seven Cooperative Principles, and will assist the Board of Directors in generating the necessary Policy Governance means and ends statements. The Co-op expects to offer salary and benefits commensurate with experience.

If you are a candidate with experience in grocery management, preferably with a Food Co-op; are detail-oriented with an entrepreneurial spirit; are community and service oriented; and are looking for an opportunity to build on an acclaimed startup and transform it into a highly successful cooperative grocery, please apply today!
