Employers and land owners in Tysons Corner are looking to strengthen their position on issues ranging from zoning to transportation funding by hiring a full-time staff member to lead their coalition, the Tysons Partnership.

The nonprofit organization formed earlier in the year, following the 2010 passage of a new master plan for Tysons Corner. Its focus is on “advancing and sustaining Tysons Corner as Fairfax County’s vibrant, economically successful and diverse urban core.”

To this point, the group has been led by representatives from the organization’s members, which include nearly all the major landowners in Tysons Corner. Keith Turner, a senior vice president of Cityline Partners, the largest landowner in Tysons, has been serving as chairman. “We are eager to find a hands-on, entrepreneurial leader to lead Tysons Partnership during this important period of growth,” Turner said in a press release.

The executive search firm LeaderFit has posted a job description.
