PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Family YMCA's board of directors has appointed Jessica Rumlow as CEO and executive director for the organization.

Rumlow was appointed interim CEO and executive director in May after Randy Kinnas, the nonprofit's CEO for the last 19 years, moved on as director of Member Advancement for the Alliance of Massachusetts YMCAs.

"We're thrilled to work with Jess as the Y's new leader. Transition in leadership can pose several challenges; however, this has been seamless given her vast Y experience and understanding of the needs of the Berkshire County community," said Peter Moore, board president of the Berkshire Family YMCA.
