GREENWICH, Conn. – Bob DeAngelo will step down in May as executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich , he announced Thursday.
DeAngelo, who has been the executive director for nearly 16 years, will continue to work at the club through May 31 to assist in the transition of leadership.
A formal search for a new executive director is underway, led by a search committee of the board. Sukie McFadden, the current COO and a staff member of the club for 27 years, will serve as interim executive director.
“I want to thank the entire Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich ‘family’ and our entire community for an incredible and special journey the past 15-plus years,'' DeAngelo said. "Helping children is an honor and privilege, and I feel so fortunate to have been part of a dedicated and talented team of staff, board members, community volunteers, partners and supporters that has made and continues to make a huge impact on the lives of many children."
Lisa Stuart, chairman of the club's Board of Trustees, said, “Bob DeAngelo is a great visionary who guided the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich for nearly 16 years. His accomplishments have been remarkable. Bob championed the fundraising behind our magnificent Clubhouse, the ice rink and the turf field. He has been a community builder who connected with all the Club’s diverse constituencies and solidified partnerships with other valued Greenwich organizations.
"Bob led countless outdoor activities for Club kids, including our fall Mud Run which tripled in attendance in just two years,'' she continued. "Bob’s enthusiasm and passion to serve kids will be missed. The BGCG Board is committed to finding a new Executive Director with the energy and talent we need to lead our organization into the future.”
