COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Board of Directors of the Metropolitan Columbus YMCA has selected David Reeves as President and CEO effective April 10 after a national search.

He will succeed David Steele, who passed away in October 2016 and had served as President and CEO since 1992.

“I'm excited, yet humbled to have been selected to be the next President and CEO of the Metropolitan Columbus YMCA,” Reeves said. “The YMCA has been a home to me for the past 30 years and I look forward to making Columbus my home and being a part of such a generous and growing community. I look forward to continuing the great work that David Steele, the Board of Directors, staff, and all stakeholders have achieved for so many years.

Reeves has served as President and CEO of the Metropolitan YMCA of Jackson, MS since 2004. The Association consists of four facilities and 14 program sites encompassing 16 counties (18,000 members) and a total budget of approximately $8 million.

“David has an impressive background in all aspects of the YMCA and we couldn’t be more pleased with his selection to lead our YMCA as President and CEO,” said board chairman Mario Davis. “It is his experience as an expert in leadership, community / team building and financial operations that makes him ideally suited for this position at an important time in our history.”

Reeves previously held positions as Group Vice President (2001-2004) and Executive Director (1996-2001) at the YMCA of Middle Tennessee in Nashville. David earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.
