YMCA Services announces new CEO
The Board of YMCA Services is delighted to announce Glyn Davies has been appointed as CEO of YMCA Services after an extensive and exhaustive internal and external recruitment process over the past few months.
“We’re really thrilled with this critical appointment,” said Richard Nedov, Chair of the newly formed YMCA Services (formerly YMCA E-store). 
“Glyn has served the YMCA for 16 years in key leadership roles, most recently as CEO of YMCA Whittlesea for the past six years, and was CEO of a privately owned national franchise business in the health and wellness industry, ran his own businesses for a decade, and spent 10 years in local government.  He comes with in-depth internal understanding of our Movement, combined with significant business experience that will help us further unlock our Movement’s potential to be a powerhouse of opportunity for Australia’s youth.”
Glyn will begin transitioning into the role for a few days a week next week, and will be in the role full time in the New Year.
“I’m really looking forward to building on the work led by the E-store Board, and Mark Sargent and the team, to take forward YMCA Services which will be overseeing both national procurement and merchandising for the Y,” said Glyn.
“I’d also like to thank the Board of YMCA Whittlesea and all the staff and volunteers, for the opportunity to work with such a dedicated team to lead an incredible six years of growth and impact in the growing Whittlesea community.”
YMCA Services Pty Ltd is a repurposing of YMCA E-store, established as part of our Towards One Y strategy, to enable the Movement to unlock significant savings for the Movement through shared purchasing, and merchandising.
The current CEO of YMCA E-store Mark Sargent will finish his career with the YMCA at the Annual General Meeting of YMCA E-store on Saturday 24th November, and all YMCA Members are invited to attend this AGM to help celebrate his career.
I look forward to communicating with our members more frequently as together, we continue to move towards and benefit from operating as One Y.
