Hamilton, NJ – January 30, 2017–The Hamilton Area YMCA Board of Directors has announced some new and exciting changes to the community based organization.  David Kisselback, who has served as the CEO, will be leaving to pursue new opportunities after leading the organization for nearly two years.  Speaking on behalf of the Board of Directors, Chairman John Cimino, said “We wish David success in his new endeavors and we thank him for his time here at the Hamilton Area YMCA.”

The Board of Directors enthusiastically announced the appointment of Interim CEO, Diana Zita.  “Diana brings with her a strong financial background, love of her community and a commitment to the important work of the YMCA.”  Cimino said.  Under the Board’s direction, Diana will continue to foster the Hamilton Area YMCA’s mission through vital programs and services that promote Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility, many of which are offered at low or no cost.  “It is a privilege and honor for me to lead an organization that is deeply committed to improving lives of those in the community we live in.  This organization has touched the lives of so many, including my own children.  For me, the Hamilton Area Y is an extended family.”
