Director Corporate Treasurer #64751 - RT

Bellevue, Washington 98004

Experience in a rate regulated utility (electric, gas, water, etc) is required. We will not consider applicants that do not meet this requirement. We are looking for someone seasoned that has aspirations to grow with the company and assume more challenging responsibilities. We need someone that has serious career aspirations of progressing into a senior finance leadership.

This is NOT a traditional treasury position. We need someone that will lead across the organization and not only contribute to the financial success of treasury.

Director Corporate Treasurer #64751

We are looking for a Corporate Treasurer driven to help us meet or beat our five year financial plan, grow our business and maximize the long term value of our company. Partnering closely with the Director Financial Planning & Budgeting, Corporate Controller and CFO, the Treasurer uses their leadership, accounting and financial know-how to bolster and maintain our financial strength, thereby supporting our mission to deliver safe, reliable and efficient service to our customers.

Responsibilities include leadership of short-term funding, cash management, commercial banking, cost of capital compliance, dividend management, pension investment administration, long-term capital funding and wholesale energy credit and risk control.

The ideal candidate brings strong business acumen, strategic agility, broad and deep experience in the electric and natural gas utility business and a passion to help us continue transforming from a traditional utility into the energy company of the future. We’re looking for a candidate to deliver our near term Treasury strategies while demonstrating the capability and desire to take on more challenges in the coming years; building our bench strength. Don’t apply if you’re looking for a traditional treasury position; apply if you want the challenge of helping us continue to transform a strong company with a 130 year history in this region.
