Berkshire Family YMCA Appoints New CEO
The Berkshire Family YMCA's board of directors has appointed Jessica Rumlow as CEO and executive director for the organization.
iBerkshires.com reports Rumlow was appointed interim CEO and executive director in May after Randy Kinnas, the nonprofit's CEO for the last 19 years, moved on as director of Member Advancement for the Alliance of Massachusetts YMCAs.
Over the past several years, the Pittsfield Y has merged with the Northern Berkshire YMCA in North Adams, formed new partnerships with the Bennington (Vt.) Recreation Center and the Catholic Youth Center in Pittsfield, and intensively developed a plan to renovate and upgrade the Y's downtown Pittsfield location.
The Berkshire Family YMCA currently operates facilities and program sites from Lenox, Mass., to Bennington, Vt., including three year-round facilities in Pittsfield, North Adams and Bennington, Vt., eight before- and after-school program sites, four child-care sites and three summer day camps.
Rumlow arrived in Pittsfield in 2013 with her husband and two children, the result of her husband’s job transfer with General Dynamics. She holds a master's degree in education and a bachelor's degree in communications.
Rumlow is active on several nonprofit board of directors and committees, including the North Adams Rotary as chairperson, Northern Berkshire Community Coalition, Polar Bears Swim Team Parent Committee, Berkshire Compact, Berkshire United Way Advisory Group, and Belder Affordable Housing.
Jessica and her husband, Josh, reside in Pittsfield, Mass., where they are raising their two children, Evan, 8, and Hailey, 13.
