Carney, Sandoe & Associates has been retained by Hawken School (Gates Mills, OH) to find their next Chief Financial Officer. Hawken School has 1,265 students ages Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12, with an endowment valued at nearly $55 million.
The new Chief Financial Officer will join a thriving school community that is alive with ambitious ideas and crackling with energy from a high-functioning administrative staff under the leadership of Head of School, Scott Looney. The School recently completed a large building project to modernize its Upper School facilities on their Gates Mills campus and the resulting Stirn Hall opened this past fall to universal acclaim. This year also marked the merger of Hawken with the Birchwood School, a highly-respected PK-8 school on the west side of Cleveland. Hawken is also in the process of planning an Early Childhood Center in Gordon Square to provide quality pre-school education to the downtown Cleveland area.
With five campuses including Birchwood (PS-8), Gordon Square (PS), Lyndhurst (PS-8), Gates Mills (9-12), and University Circle Extension Center, the next CFO will need to hit the ground running to address the needs of a growing, complex environment.
