Ryan will guide the Charity in its mission to create improved access to life-changing opportunities.
Ryan succeeds Arvinda Gohil OBE, who announced in October 2022 her intention to step down from Central YMCA. Arvinda steered the charity through a challenging tenure, with the impact of a pandemic, energy and cost of living crisis, and has helped this historic charity continue to find creative and meaningful ways to support its communities.
Ryan first joined the charity almost a decade ago and has extensive experience in the education sector as well as a wealth of knowledge of the fitness and wellbeing landscape. Ryan was most recently Chief Revenue Officer at Central YMCA, leading the charity’s income generation strategy and responsible for growing and diversifying the provision on offer.
