The local YMCA’s Board of Directors unanimously approved the appointment of Greg Coil to fulfill the role. Coil, who has more than 25 years of senior executive leadership experience, most recently served as the vice-president of operations and property management for the YMCA of Greater New York.
David Burdo will continue as the interim CEO until Coil begins in August.
Local YMCA Board President Kathy Humphrey said Coil’s vision and energy is what they’re looking for “during this important time in our rich history.”
“Greg brings passion for the mission and the work of the Y; tremendous breadth and depth of his experience and expertise; a strong commitment to working together with others to meet community needs and to further the cause of the Y,” Humphrey said.
Humphrey said they’re looking forward to Coil’s leadership as volunteers, staff and donors work together to create a healthier and stronger community for everyone.
The Tri-Cities Family YMCA’s Board of Directors worked with the YMCA of the USA during a three-month national search for the next CEO.
Coil earned a bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University and his master’s degree in social work from New York University.
Coil said he’s honored to accept the position and return to West Michigan.
“I truly look forward to growing the great programs and services the Y offers to advance our cause for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility through the greater Tri-Cities area,” he said.
