The Aspen Leadership Group is proud to partner with the Metropolitan Opera in the search for its new Assistant General Manager, Development.

Reporting to the General Manager, the Assistant General Manager, Development will serve as the organization's chief development officer, working closely with the General Manager and Board of Directors on the development, implementation, execution, and evaluation of short- and long-term fundraising goals and strategies for the Metropolitan Opera (the Met). The Assistant General Manager will manage relationships with key constituents including individuals, corporations, foundations, and other stakeholders, securing contributions of over $100 million annually from all sources in support of the operations and activities of the Met. The Assistant General Manager oversees a team of 43 full-time employees.

The Metropolitan Opera is a vibrant home for the most creative and talented singers, conductors, composers, musicians, stage directors, designers, visual artists, choreographers, and dancers from around the world.

Since the summer of 2006, Peter Gelb has been the Met’s general manager—the 16th in company history. Under his leadership, the Met has elevated its theatrical standards by significantly increasing the number of new operas and new productions, staged by the most imaginative directors working in theater and opera, and has launched a series of initiatives to broaden its reach internationally. These efforts to win new audiences prominently include the successful Live in HD series of high-definition performance transmissions to movie theaters around the world. To revitalize its repertoire, the Met regularly presents premieres of new works alongside the classics. In September 2018, Yannick Nézet-Séguin assumed the musical helm of the company as the Met’s Jeannette Lerman-Neubauer Music Director.

The Metropolitan Opera will consider candidates with a broad range of backgrounds. A bachelor's degree or an equivalent combination of education and experience and at least ten years of experience in a senior leadership fundraising role, including the oversight of high performing teams, is preferred. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and resume. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission of the Metropolitan Opera as well as the responsibilities and qualifications stated in the position prospectus.

The salary range for this position is $325,000 to $375,000 annually.

Preference will be given to applications received by June 16, 2023.
