McDermott + Bull is excited to be working with Make-A-Wish, Metro New York + Western New York, on recruiting a new Chief Financial Officer. This search will be led by McDermott + Bull Partner Sue Waterbury and Chief Operating Officer Angela Anderson.

The mission of the Make-A-Wish Foundation is to create life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. They believe children and their families deserve the chance to enjoy once-in-a-lifetime experiences that relieve them of the immense stress that accompanies the treatment of a life-threatening medical condition, and produce positive, hopeful mindsets that outlast the illness. The Make-A-Wish Foundation’s wish-granting activities accomplish this by augmenting traditional medicine, impacting each child’s emotional state and the family unit – the child’s primary support structure. 

The ideal candidate will be a data driven leader with experience leading the finances and managing the reporting, forecasting, budgeting, accounting, and comparative analysis of a nonprofit organization.

If you know anyone who might be a good fit for the role, please contact Angela Anderson at
