Imagine all Americans enjoying ideal cardiovascular health free of heart disease and stroke. At the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, we get to work toward that goal every day. Is it easy? No. Is it worthwhile? Absolutely.

This is satisfying and challenging work that makes a real difference in people's lives. We are where you can achieve professional growth with personal fulfillment. We are where you can connect people to making a lifesaving impact. We are where you can partner with individuals, schools, lawmakers, healthcare providers and others to ensure everyone has access to healthier lifestyle choices and proper healthcare. The American Heart Association is where you can make an extraordinary impact.


The American Heart Association is looking for a National Director of the Heart Ball campaign based out of our National Center office located in Dallas, TX! While Dallas is the preferred location, we will consider remote but must live near a major airport.

This leader will be responsible for running a $100M field campaign through campaign oversight, product development and marketing, and driving a sales strategy through field channels.

Ideal candidates for this position will have experience in brand management, product development and marketing, and/or field marketing; and will understand the hearts and minds of major gift donors and corporate sponsors. Succeeding at this position will require leadership, autonomy, polished management skills, organizational vision, collaboration, tactical excellence, and nervy strategic thinking. Sharp creative instincts are needed, as well as keen business savvy.

  • Analytical skills. This role involves forecasting future consumer trends and determining the various benefits and challenges of a particular pathway

  • This role requires much more than just sticking to a standard formula. Instead, coming up with new and unheard-of marketing ideas and products is crucial

  • Storytelling abilities. Successfully promoting the American Heart Association and Heart Ball brand requires coming up with a compelling story about the campaign, event, or product to convey to the audience

  • Research skills. Brand managers must research their consumer base extremely thoroughly in order to appeal to that audience successfully

  • Vision: We are looking for someone who sees a pathway to double the fundraising revenue through the Heart Ball platform. For someone who views every obstacle as an opportunity, has experience in successfully leading large-scale strategic efforts, and can identify and foster long-term scope growth

Want to help get your resume to the top? Take a look at the experience we require:


  • Bachelor's degree
