YMCA settles on interim leader

YMCA England has appointed the chief executive of one of its largest associations as interim national secretary.

Ian Green, chief executive of Kingston and Wimbledon YMCA, beat six other applicants to land the role on an initial six-month contract. He succeeds Angela Sarkis, who was given a pay-off to leave YMCA England earlier this year. Chair David Bedford resigned only days later when facing a vote of no confidence from some of the trustees (Third Sector, 16 April).

Green will take up the position later this month on a part-time basis. He will assume a fuller role in August.

Tim Waldron, chair of YMCA England, said: "Ian offers us a wealth of expertise and understanding of the YMCA that we will draw on as we review our governance and future strategy."
