The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix, serving Phoenix and the West Valley, has announced Scottsdale resident Marcia Mintz as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Ms. Mintz was selected by BGCMP’s Board of Directors following an extensive national search, according to a press release.
“We are excited to have Marcia lead BGCMP into the future,” said BGCMP Board Chair, Kevin McHolland, in the release. “Her extensive experience in serving charitable organizations at all program, fundraising, executive and leadership levels, as well as her deep sense of commitment to the Valley’s nonprofit sector, stood out among an impressive group of candidates.”
Ms. Mintz joins BGCMP with more than 20 years of non-profit leadership experience. Most recently, she served as the president of the John C. Lincoln Health Foundation and senior vice president of community benefit programs and services at HonorHealth.
She has also served as the chief development office of Valley of the Sun United Way.
Prior to that, she worked in the Bay Area for a multi-use residential and recreational campus and eight years in global program development, the release stated.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to lead a great organization with a strong name and reputation for empowering youth and teens in our most under-served neighborhoods,” said Ms. Mintz in the release. “I look forward to working together with the BGCMP team and board, as well as local leaders and supporters to ensure a successful future for each and every one of our club members.”
Ms. Mintz holds a Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Arizona, Eller School of Management, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from New York University, the release stated.
She will replace Amy Gibbons, who is retiring on Dec. 30, after serving BGCMP for 18 years.
