Chief of Staff to the Chief Executive Officer

Location: New York, NY 

Overview

The Chief of Staff to the CEO (“the COS”) is an important role, enabling the CEO (Howard W. Lutnick) to work most effectively with internal and external stakeholders.  This is a facilitative role that requires a combination of focus and flexibility, as well as a willingness to play an active, behind-the-scenes role.  The role requires a highly resourceful individual with strong emotional intelligence, self-motivation, integrity, willingness to put the CEO’s and the firm’s interest above all else, absolute confidentiality where appropriate, and strong analytical skills.

This full-time position reports directly to the CEO and encompasses the below key duties, among others:

  • Preparation for, and facilitation of, “critical path” CEO meetings (e.g., with CF executive leadership, current or potential CF employees or clients and peer executives). While members of any one of these groups may initiate these meetings through the CEO’s Executive Assistant and be responsible for inviting and preparing participants, the COS is accountable to ensure that the meeting objectives are realistic, that preparation is appropriate, and that the CEO is well-informed. This responsibility is about content and the COS’s judgment about the appropriateness and sufficiency of the intended preparation. In other words, the COS’s role is to make sure the CEO’s time is leveraged most effectively in a meeting context. This may mean querying and pushing back on senior executives and assisting in their preparation for their interactions with the CEO.
  • Proactive identification of issues that could impact the successful execution of the CEO’s commitments.  This responsibility involves elevating those issues about which the CEO should be aware and framing/positioning ideas to resolve the problem/mitigate the risk. This is among the most challenging aspects of the job and will require the COS to focus on the underlying interests of the parties working with the CEO, understand their intentions, and creatively identify alternative means of handling pressing issues.  Key responsibilities involve helping the CEO determine how best to apportion his time and interest to achieve the greatest impact.
  • Coordination/orchestration of projects or commitments directly involving the CEO and his direct reports. This responsibility primarily focuses on ensuring alignment among the often disparate stakeholders and, when such alignment is absent, sharing this fact with the CEO and recommending mitigating approaches. While this responsibility envisions the COS “going deep” on a relatively limited number of projects, she/he would also need to understand the breadth of the projects within the CEO’s purview.  Tact, diplomacy, and persistence are essential qualities in executing this dimension of the role.
  • Development of draft communication on behalf of the CEO and/or research in support of these. Communications range from correspondence related to the CEO’s various meetings, to various speaking engagements involving external audiences as approved by the CEO.
  • Support the executive team’s communications with the CEO.  The COS will help facilitate decisions that the executive staff need to receive feedback on from the CEO.  She/he will support the needs of the executive staff in their ability to raise critical issues with the CEO and receive needed responses, guidance and decisions. 

There is travel involved, as the COS will accompany the CEO when he travels.  This role is based in the New York office.

Core Competencies 

Critical core competencies for successful performance in this role are:

  • Highly-developed communications skills (written/verbal) and interpersonal savvy
  • Results/action-orientation; project management skills
  • Organizational and political agility; developed negotiation skills
  • Unquestionable personal code of confidentiality, ethics, integrity, diversity and trust
  • Able to successfully navigate within varying degrees of ambiguity in a fast-paced environment
  • Strong strategic/financial analysis skills
  • Revenue-generating financial services and/or commercial real estate experience is a plus

Qualifications

This role provides privileged access to the inner workings of CF and to highly sensitive information. The successful candidate will be discrete, high-energy, agile-minded, strategic, proactive, a direct communicator, highly-organized and committed to the vision and values of CF, and willing to put the CEO’s and the firm’s interests above all else.  In addition, the following standards will generally define the successful candidate:

  • Minimum of 8 years work experience required; MBA, JD, or MPP desirable.
  • Applicable/transferable experience: private sector roles in law, business strategy or consulting; public sector policy roles; campaign aides/strategists; experience in a revenue generating role; prior entrepreneurial experience in an executive position
  • Good sense of self and strong personal presence
  • Commitment in both time and spirit to the CEO above self
  • Willingness to work hard and take direction—but also creatively solve problems for which the answers aren’t always obvious
  • Knowledge of CF and key stakeholders desirable but not essential

Salary

Salary is commensurate with qualifications.
