The YMCA of Greater Boston has appointed Lexington resident Jack Fucci as the new executive director of the Waltham YMCA.
Fucci has led the Oak Square YMCA in Brighton, also part of the YMCA Greater Boston, for the past 10 years, according to a press release from the YMCA of Greater Boston announcing the appointment this month.
The Oak Square YMCA has the highest daily attendance of all local YMCA facilities, and Fucci plans to continue to grow the Waltham YMCA to serve more people, especially those in financial need.
The Waltham YMCA along with all of the YMCA of Greater Boston facilities have recently lowered membership rates.
"As a charitable non-profit, the YMCA is committed to helping individuals and families improve their health, and by delivering high quality programs in state of the art facilities at prices everyone can afford, we are fulfilling our mission," said Fucci in the press release.
Fucci has more than two decades of community building, fundraising, partnership development and programming expertise. Prior to joining the YMCA of Greater Boston, he was a director for a technology based company that provides exercise and rehabilitation tracking and staff management tools to YMCA?s, universities, the military and hospital based fitness centers. In that role Fucci worked with hospitals and hundreds of YMCA?s across the country, including the YMCA's of Greater Boston.
"On behalf of the Waltham YMCA Board, we welcome Jack's proven leadership and are looking forward to him continuing the legacy of building strong families throughout our community,'' said Waltham YMCA Board of Directors Chair Laura Goldin. "Our goal as community leaders will continue to be providing accessibility and affordability to all."
