YMCA Begins Search for New CEO

The Door County YMCA will soon be launching a search for a new chief executive officer after current CEO Dan Powell resigned last week.

Powell accepted the CEO position at the Whatcom Family YMCA in Bellingham, Wash. He has been CEO for seven years and his last day at the Door County YMCA will be Sept. 6.

“While Dan’s departure is a loss to our community and to those he has befriended, we wish Dan and his family well in their future adventures with the YMCA in Bellingham, Washington,” Stephens said. “He is certainly leaving a legacy at our YMCA and has positioned us well to serve the Door County community!”

Stephens, along with staff of the national and local YMCAs and current and former Door County YMCA board members, is part of a committee to find a new CEO. He expects to fill the position in two to four months.

“The YMCA is a pretty well-oiled machine when it comes to selecting executives,” he said.
