Kurt Stringfellow, President & CEO of the Sarasota Family YMCA, Inc., announced his resignation on Thursday, July 21 to pursue an opportunity to return to his “southern roots” that he and his family could not pass up. Kurt would like to express his gratitude for the support he received from the community, leadership and staff over the years. “These relationships and results are embedded deep into my heart and I will be forever thankful,” said Kurt Stringfellow.
Under his leadership since November 2012, the Sarasota YMCA has revitalized the organization’s culture and cause, while financially stabilizing the organization and strengthening branch operations, including returning our CBC to being a leader in child welfare. Kurt championed efforts to raise the Y’s profile, incorporating national Y-USA health initiatives such as LiveStrong at the YMCA and Diabetes Prevention Program.
We are grateful for how well platformed Kurt has positioned the Y for the future. We look forward to continued success and leadership as we transition into our next phase of growth and service to the community.
