This experienced leader will report to the President & Chief Executive Officer and work with the Soulsville Foundation leadership to advance the three entities of Soulsville Foundation: The Soulsville Charter School, Stax Music Academy and Stax Museum of American Soul Music.

Soulsville Foundation has been growing steadily and is now seeking to dramatically accelerate growth. The organization’s leadership is looking for a mission-focused, seasoned, strategic, and process-minded leader with experience growing an organization, leading a team, and developing a performance-culture among a group of diverse and talented individuals. The COO must be a leader who is able to help others at the Soulsville Foundation deliver measurable, cost-effective results that make the vision a reality. Importantly, the successful COO will have the skills, sensitivity, and personal confidence to tap into the power that each member of the team brings to this mission. While it is essential that the COO bring efficient and effective systems to increase the productivity of the organization, is it also critical that the team retain the creative spark that drives the Soulsville Foundation.

The Chief Operating Officer, in addition to overseeing internal functions, will help allow the President & CEO to focus on external matters such as fundraising, public relations, and partnerships.

The Soulsville Foundation (soulsvillefoundation.org) was created in Memphis, Tennessee, in the late 1990s by a group of local business leaders, philanthropists, and former employees of Stax Records to carry forward the rich legacy of the Soulsville USA community, home to Stax Records in the 1960s and 1970s. The mission of Soulsville Foundation is to uplift and invigorate the music and heritage of Stax Records to develop young people for lifelong success, and continue to inspire and transform the world through the power of soul music. In service to this mission, Soulsville Foundation funds and operates three subsidiary organizations on its campus at the original site of Stax:
• Stax Museum of American Soul Music (staxmuseum.com) opened its doors as the first and only soul music museum on the original Stax Records site in 2003. Since then, the Stax Museum has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors, sharing the story of American soul music – and especially the “Memphis Sound” – through special exhibits, events and various community outreach programs. An exact replica of the original Stax Records home, the Museum has more than 2,000 cultural artifacts, music exhibits, video footage, and items of memorabilia, all assembled to preserve and promote the legacy of American soul music.
• Stax Music Academy (staxmusicacademy.org) has been mentoring youth since 2000, initially from the surrounding Soulsville USA neighborhood and increasingly from across Memphis, using music as a connector. A highly regarded after-school program housed in a state-of-the-art facility, the Academy personifies the spirit of harmony, respect, and cooperation that defined the legendary Stax Records. The Stax Music Academy annually serves approximately 120 high school and middle school students in its SNAP! after School program during the school year and approximately 100 high school students during its 5- week SNAP! Summer Music Experience.
• The Soulsville Charter School (soulsvillecharterschool.org) is a tuition-free public charter school whose mission is to prepare students for success in college and life in an academically rigorous, music-rich environment. Launched in 2005 with 60 students, the school’s current enrollment is 600+ students serving grades 6-12 with an emphasis on college and post-secondary success. The Soulsville Charter School is a force rising up against ordinary expectations and the status quo of public education in Memphis.

The COO will collaborate with the President & CEO and staff to build on Soulsville Foundation’s history, further the organization as a global leader in soul music, enhance its youth development offerings, and deepen its impact in the local community.
