New York, NY

92nd Street Y announced last week the appointment of Henry Timms as its new executive director; Timms previously served as the organization’s deputy executive director for innovation, strategy and content and interim executive director.  During his time at 92Y, Timms has spearheaded efforts to reimagine the role of the traditional community and cultural center, using innovative programming and new technology to share 92Y’s programs and values both locally and globally.

"Our search for our new executive director was far-reaching and comprehensive,” said Stuart J. Ellman, president of the 92Y board of directors, “and we were fortunate to have had such a strong internal candidate in Henry. The board voted unanimously to select Henry, both for his remarkable achievements and leadership to date, and as someone from whom we believe the best is yet to come. We expect that Henry will take 92Y from strength to strength as his leadership builds upon our legacy of innovation and outreach.”

“I am deeply honored to serve as 92Y’s new executive director,” Timms said. “This organization has a superb board and a stellar staff; it’s a team that is committed to serving every member of our community more fully and to thinking big about how we can increase our impact.  This is a remarkable organization full of both creativity and compassion, and I’m proud to be a part of it.”
