NEWPORT NEWS, VIRGINIA (April 1, 2018) – After a nationwide search, the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA Board of Directors today named Adam Klutts as the new chief executive officer of the leading nonprofit organization that operates 13 branch locations, one overnight camp, and 6 program centers across Isle of Wight County, the Peninsula, Middle Peninsula, and Northern Neck of Virginia. For nearly 122-years, the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA has offered programs and services that nurture the potential of every adult and child, promotes health and well-being, and encourages social responsibility.
“On behalf of the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA Board of Directors, I am delighted for Adam to join us in our service and mission to our communities,” said Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA President of the Board Don Buckless. “Adam will have an immediate and positive impact on the Y and all we do to strengthen communities.”
Adam, together with his wife, Rasa, and 2-year-old daughter, Ella, comes to us from Tampa, Florida. Since 2012, he served as the Executive Vice President and COO of the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA with oversight of operations totaling $32.4 million annually. Some of his key results included increasing funds raised for the annual support campaign, developing partnerships, and growing the numbers of people benefiting from YMCA membership and programs.
With over 20 years experience with the YMCA, Adam served as the Senior Group Vice President of the South Tampa Family YMCA. As the Executive Director of the Peggy and Philip B. Crosby Wellness Center, he received the Central Florida YMCA Pinnacle Award given for growth in all areas (membership, revenue, financial performance, annual giving, programs and staff development). Earlier positions include Executive Director of the Riverfront Family YMCA in Akron, Associate Executive Director of the Arthur Jordan YMCA in Indianapolis, and Associate Executive Director of the Green Family YMCA in Akron.
“I am honored to be invited to serve at the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA alongside a team of cause-driven staff, volunteers, partners, community, and business leaders dedicated to providing supportive programs for children, families, and friends who rely on the Y every day,” said Klutts. “Together, we will provide transformational experiences to ensure everyone, regardless of age, income, or background has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive as they reach goals, establish caring relationships, and make a connection with the movement we call the YMCA.”
Adam earned his BA degree in Organizational Communications from the University of Akron Ohio. He begins as CEO on April 9th, 2018.
