Community Manager

Company: PEI Media

PEI Media is launching a membership network for Chief Financial Officers and Chief Operating Officers within private equity in North America.
The Network provides opportunities to connect and share through regular virtual and in-person meetings and conferences, one-to-one introductions, and small-scale workshops.
The most critical ingredient for success is engagement. We therefore have created the important role of Community Manager, based in New York.
