Arthur M. Blank has brought a commitment to giving back to and doing the right thing for communities into everything he has led throughout his life and career. From the early days of Home Depot to the thriving AMB Sports and Entertainment (AMBSE) businesses to the conservation and hospitality enterprises of AMB West in Montana to the grantmaking work of the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation (AMBFF), Arthur Blank’s legacy of success is directly tied to his fierce commitment to values-based business and community well-being. This year the Blank family will celebrate its family foundation’s 25th anniversary as it approaches $600 million in total giving in 2020 with a commitment to significantly increase the impact of their philanthropy over the next 10 years. This milestone coincides with an important generational transition of leadership for the Blank family’s social impact efforts and AMB Philanthropies describes the span of that portfolio of social giving across the family’s various enterprises. To that end, the family invites nominations and applications for a President for the AMB Philanthropies portfolio who will serve both as the Chief Executive of the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation and on the Executive Leadership Team of the Blank Family of Businesses, leveraging the power of their corporate, real estate, social capital, and fiscal resources to increased impact. More information about the family’s legacy of giving can be found at www.blankfoundation.org.
The new President will work in direct and strategic thought partnership with Arthur Blank and the Blank family to develop a clear and sustainable vision that honors the differences and drivers across each corporate and philanthropic entity while supporting, leveraging, and connecting them all through important, values-aligned and community-grounded work. Recognizing the legacy of the Blank family’s giving as a central component of this work, the new President will lead operations and grantmaking for the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, ensuring areas of individual and collective family philanthropy are supported by a strong and skilled staff as grantmaking scales up over the next 10 years. The President will also maintain consistent communication and coordination with leaders of the Blank Family of Businesses (BFOB), which operate as a portfolio of synergistic and socially responsible enterprises, and serve on its leadership council to develop synergies with the family’s portfolios of work as well as provide support to corporate philanthropy, economic development, and other social mission work undertaken by the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United, PGA TOUR Superstore, Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Mountain Sky Guest Ranch, Paradise Valley Ranch, and West Creek Ranch.
