CEO of YWCA of Greater Flint to Resign Position

YWCA of Greater Flint

After five-and-a-half years of service to the YWCA of Greater Flint, CEO Paul Newman has announced his intentions to step down from that role. According to a news release, Newman will continue to serve in the top leadership role while the Board of Directors completes the search process for his replacement.

Newman had joined the YWCA as interim CEO in March of 2008 to lead a turnaround plan for the organization, which involved improving financial and management processes, addressing a maintenance plan for the facility, renewing fund development activities and restructuring the board governance. He was appointed permanent CEO in 2010.

In submitting his intent to resign, Newman noted the organization is well positioned to continue to maintain financial, programmatic and operation objectives and has gained significant community and donor support over the past five years. He will retire to spend more time with his wife, Jean, their six children and 17 grandkids.

Laurie Prochazka, president of the YWCA Board of Directors, said “Paul has exceeded all expectations from the time he came to the YWCA five years ago through the present.” She added “the YWCA has benefited greatly from his leadership, and we appreciate his willingness to stay on through our CEO search process.”

The YWCA is beginning the formal CEO search process in early August, with intentions to hire a new CEO this fall. More information on the YWCA of Greater Flint and the CEO position can be found on their website:
