SRYMCA Board Names Scott Clark Interim CEO

June 29, 2020


The Saratoga Regional YMCA Board of Directors has appointed Vice President of Operations Scott Clark as interim CEO, following the departure of Andrew Bobbitt. The appointment takes effect immediately.

“The SRYMCA has experienced a period of tremendous growth over the past several years, including construction of the Malta branch and major capital improvements at the Wilton and Saratoga Springs branches,” said Rick Schumaker, president of the Board of Directors. “We thank Andrew for his service during this time and wish him well.”

Mr. Clark has more than 32 years of experience in YMCA operations, facilities, membership and health and wellness. Prior to joining the Saratoga Regional YMCA in March 2019, he served as Vice President of Operations at the YMCA of Greater Kansas City and oversaw seven full-service YMCA facilities with an annual budget of more than $15 million. At SRYMCA, Scott leads the operations of the SRYMCA’s five branches, including all aspects of membership, programs and childcare.

“Since joining the SRYMCA, Scott has spearheaded meaningful and positive changes throughout our organization. We are a stronger organization as a result, and his leadership served as a foundation as we refined and grew to better serve our community. The SRYMCA has cultivated a team of committed, highly-capable personnel across all divisions and we are confident of their ability, with Scott at the helm, to lead us through this important transition,” said Mr. Schumaker.

“I have dedicated my entire professional career to the YMCA organization because I believe in its mission to build healthy spirits, minds and bodies for all,” Mr. Clark said. “I look forward to working with the SRYMCA management team, including our dedicated branch managers and senior staff, to continue our organization’s long tradition of service to the greater Saratoga community.”
