The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito (BGCSDTO) recently announced the retirement of Keith Padgett, chief executive officer, effective June 30.  David H. Crean, board chairman, will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer on an interim basis. The Board of Directors for BGCSDTO has established a CEO Search Committee comprised of members from the board’s Executive Committee that will lead efforts in the identification and selection of the club’s next Chief Executive Officer.

Padgett has over 40 years of nonprofit management experience at highly regarded organizations including the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Big Brother Big Sister (BBBS) agencies and the BGCSDTO.

During Padgett’s tenure at BGCSDTO, the number of children served had increased from 8,000 to 20,000 annually with an increase in annual operating budget from $2 million to $5 million.  Padgett helped successfully add a Middle School Sports program that serves 1,200 boys and girls in 10 sports, a Montessori school, and the Center for a Healthy Lifestyle facility to address childhood obesity.

In addition, under Padgett’s leadership, BGCSDTO was named the non-profit organization of the year in 2012 by the Solana Beach Chamber.  As a testament to his successes, Padgett has been elected or appointed to numerous professional posts, including Chairman of the BGCA San Diego Area Council, LA Mentoring Coalition, BBBSA National Professional Staff Council for the Western United States and President of the BBBSA Executive Directors Association.

“Keith’s dedication to and passion for our mission at BGCSDTO have been exemplary”, stated Board Chair David H. Crean.  “Keith built a high quality, devoted leadership team and staff that is seen as a strong asset for the club and will be relied upon during the transition to drive further success. The board appreciates the efforts and accomplishments Keith made over the past 11 years for the organization and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”
