GREENSBURG — The YMCA of Greensburg has entered into a management and operational agreement with the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh to provide executive leadership for the organization and assessment of programs and services. Both YMCAs agreed to move forward with the agreement after careful consideration following the resignation of current CEO, Suzanne Printz.

The management agreement provides a unique opportunity for the Greensburg Y to utilize the various resources that the Greater Pittsburgh Y has as a larger organization. The management agreement will be temporary. During this time, Amy Kienle, President/CEO of the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh will oversee the organization with supports from her leadership team. Kienle’s Y career spans 25 years including experience at all levels of leadership in small, mid and large size YMCA associations. As CEO at Georgia Mountains YMCA she led the struggling organization’s transformation resulting in 28% growth over eight years.

“We are looking forward to the YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh and Amy coming on board to lead the YMCA of Greensburg through this transition and next phase of growth” Dr. Sydney Beeler, President of the Board of Directors for the YMCA Greensburg said. “We have made strides within the organization and have the opportunity to continue to propel forward key strategies and initiatives by utilizing systems and expertise that the Pittsburgh Y has the capacity to offer.”

The YMCA of Greensburg is a charitable non-profit that has served the greater Greensburg area for over 155 years by putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
