President & CEO Search

Kate Roberts, MBEP president and CEO, has announced her retirement effective December 31, 2021. The MBEP Board of Directors is conducting a search to select and appoint Ms. Roberts’ successor by that date.

Monterey Bay Economic Partnership (MBEP) envisions a thriving region with quality jobs, excellent education and health care, while preserving the natural beauty of our environment. MBEP currently is working on four initiatives aligned with its vision: affordable housing, equity in availability of broadband, preparing the region’s workforce for local jobs, and mitigating climate change.  MBEP is also a recognized leader in organizing large events with relevant and actionable content for leaders and influencers in the region. Each year in the spring, MBEP hosts its Regional Economic Summit and the State of the Region conference in the fall.

MBEP is seeking a leader who has the right combination of regional knowledge, management skills, non-profit, business, and economic development acumen, public speaking and external relations, and the ability to be a senior thought leader in the region and statewide.

MBEP is recruiting for a new president and CEO who will build on the momentum of the organization since its founding and continue to develop MBEP as a regional catalyst of equitable and sustainable growth. Interested candidates should review the position description and a description of MBEP.
