Chief Operating Officer

The Diocese of Covington, Kentucky has established the new position of Chief Operating Officer, and we invite prospective candidates to submit their qualifications for consideration. The COO will oversee the day-to-day responsibilities of the functional leaders in the diocesan curia, and will ensure that they work together on diocesan priorities as a coordinated team. We seek an individual who is a business leader, with both the professional expertise to run the operational side of the curia and the personal commitment to advance the mission of the Church of Covington. Reporting directly to the Bishop, the COO will not only have responsibility for the strategic, programmatic, and administrative management of the offices of the curia, but will also assist the Bishop with the development and implementation of his vision for our local Church. The COO will provide strategic vision and leadership as a core thought partner for the Bishop, supporting him in making significant decisions by leading the analysis, criteria-setting, option evaluation, and input gathering for these decisions. The COO will be a faith-filled, actively-practicing Catholic with a solid understanding of Church life and relationships, as well as demonstrated strong skills in strategy and analysis, change management, outcome-focused priority- and goal-setting, teamwork and collaboration, consensus-building, organizational management, and communication. S/he will have a minimum of ten years of senior leadership experience, with at least a graduate-level degree in an appropriate area. Significant ministry formation and experience would be helpful. Qualified individuals may send a letter of interest along with a comprehensive resume or curriculum vita, including compensation history and references with contact email addresses, to Stephen Koplyay, SPHR by July 31, 2022.
