GREENWICH, Conn. (PRWEB) June 10, 2014
On June 3, the YMCA of Greenwich's Board of Directors elected new officers for 2014-2015.
Sandy Waters, former Chairman of the Greenwich Board of Education, is the second woman in the 100-year history of the YMCA to be elected Board Chairman. Jeff Lombardi, former Director, Global Head of Private Bank Portfolio Management at Citibank, and Patrice Francois, former IBM executive, were elected Vice Chairmen. Robert Caldaroni, Director of Financial Reporting for Blyth, Inc., was elected Treasurer. Philip Lochner, retired Time-Warner Inc. executive, was elected Board Secretary.
Jim Cabrera, outgoing Chairman thanked the Board and staff for their hard work: “When we began, we had a lot of work to do, and we did it. The building is complete, our financial house is in order, membership is growing and we are, again, a resource that all in town can access.”
Sandy Waters looks forward to helping the Y implement the Board’s vision for excellence and to expanding the Y’s outreach to the Greenwich community. “A vibrant YMCA that is accessible to all men, women, and children who seek to better themselves is an important, foundational Greenwich institution. With the help of a strong Board and staff, I am eager to help it realize its potential. We are grateful for Jim’s contribution to the Greenwich YMCA as Chairman and are pleased that he will remain a Board member in the coming year,” she said.
The YMCA also increased its Board size from 27 to 33 and announced the election of eight new board members: Al Brodbeck, Scott Elwell, Christine Lavin, Jon Mallon, Jon Ross-Wiley, Charles Spiess, Robert Sterling, and Jeanie Wahl.
