YMCA of Greenwich elects new board officers and members

The YMCA of Greenwich Board of Directors has elected new officers for 2014-2015. Former Board of Education Chairman Sandy Waters has been chosen as board chairman, just the second woman to hold the position in the YMCA’s  near 100-year history.

Jeff Lombardi, formerly the director of Private Bank Portfolio Management at Citibank, and former IBM executive Patrice Francois were elected as vice chairmen. Blyth, Inc. Director of Financial Reporting Robert Caldaroni will act as treasurer for the board, while retired Time-Warner executive Philip Lochner will take on the role of board secretary.

Departing chairman Jim Cabrera thanked the YMCA board and staff for their hardwork, saying “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.”

Ms. Waters said she will continue the process of actualizing the board’s commitment to excellence and community outreach in Greenwich.

“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 board has increased in size from 27 to 33 this year, with eight new members joining the board: Al Brodbeck, Scott Elwell, Christine Lavin, Jon Mallon, Jon Ross-Wiley, Charles Spiess, Robert Sterling and Jeanie Wahl.

The 100th anniversary of the YMCA of Greenwich will land in 2016, and it remains the largest community-based organization in the town with more than 5,400 members.
