In 1987, Community Vision’s founders had a vision of putting their money to work as a tool for building financially strong and culturally vibrant communities capable of growing their own seeds of self-determination. We have successfully carried out that vision since the 1980s, by connecting investors to communities, lending to nonprofits, small businesses, and
cooperatives, and providing financial and real estate consulting to organizations that share our vision of sustainable communities and social, racial, and economic justice.
Since then we’ve invested more than $450 million in projects throughout California, impacting the lives of more than 2.7 million of our neighbors. Our lending and consulting services support organizations that provide affordable housing, equitable and sustainable access to healthy food, community arts, and critical social, medical, and youth services.
All employees of Community Vision are expected to engage with and support a collaborative culture at the organization. This includes treating colleagues with respect, supporting the vision of the organization, and demonstrating the professional practices of the organization. We strive to be community-centered, patient, communicative, responsive, conscious of difference, and data-driven. Our values include responsiveness, humility, curiosity, humor, creativity, practicality, accountability, and a strong work ethic. Staff members attend to the culture of the organization by being ambassadors of Community Vision’s values and participating in internally focused workgroups.
Community Vision’s Lending Group provides loans and New Markets Tax Credit financing, with an emphasis on achieving greater racial and economic equity. Our borrowers have made use of our financing to develop affordable housing, build and acquire community facilities, create economic development projects, support access to healthy foods, and strengthen their operations in order to make a difference in the lives of the communities that they serve.
The Senior Asset Manager (SAM) will lead Community Vision’s asset management efforts, with primary responsibility for monitoring the organization’s loan portfolio, both in terms of following and recommending measures to prevent and remedy loan defaults, and also developing procedures to review the quality of the underlying assets that secure the portfolio, including periodic site visits to existing borrowers. The SAM will be responsible not only for asset management of CV’s loan portfolio, but also a significant off-balance sheet New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) portfolio, as well as several smaller financing initiatives that lie outside of CV’s general loan pool. The SAM will be in charge of the quarterly portfolio monitoring process, including the maintenance of loan risk ratings, and will be the point person for addressing non-performing loans. The SAM will also carry out basic underwriting of existing borrowers, including line of credit renewals, routine loan extensions and modifications, and simple new loan requests. This person will play a leading role in construction loan review and approval of disbursements. The SAM reports to CV’s Director of Lending Operations, and will receive staff support from the Loan Administration team in collection of data, Borrower communications, document preparation, as needed.

Community Vision provides equal employment opportunities to all employees. We realize that the impact of a discriminatory policy, institutionalized financial neglect, and systemic racism have resulted in a deep sense of distrust felt among communities on the margins of opportunity, including people of color, folks of various abilities, genders and sexualities, and communities with low financial wealth. We believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities.
Position is open until filled. For more information on our programs and services, please visit our website at: communityvisionca.org
