Managed Funds Association

Director Of Communications
The Managed Funds Association, based in Washington, DC and New York, represents the global alternative investment industry by advocating for public policies that foster efficient, transparent, fair capital markets, and competitive tax and regulatory structures. The MFA communications team advances the overall mission by representing the organization’s position on public policy and shapes how stakeholders view the industry through the press and MFA’s multi-channel communications strategy.

MFA is seeking a team member who can perform across functions to advance our agenda on policy issues and educate the public about the hedge fund industry. The director will work closely with member firms, legal and government relations staff, conference and events staff, and outside consultants to help communicate policy and regulatory matters to the media, as well as external and member audiences.

The ideal candidate is a strong strategic thinker with substantial experience working in a fast-paced communications operation in multi-client consulting, industry, a trade association, or government. A successful candidate should have a proven track record executing public affairs campaigns and driving earned media in national, financial, and regional outlets. The director must be a team player, self-starter, organized, and willing to learn new skills and take on a variety of assignments.
