MONTCLAIR, NJ—The YMCA of Montclair has named Tim Weidman as the Interim President and CEO by the Board of Directors until a search for a permanent President and CEO can be completed.

Weidman, who was the CEO of the Summit area YMCA for 20 years, succeeds Jo Ann Short, who left the YMCA of Montclair after seven years at the helm.

“We are fortunate to have someone with the depth of YMCA experience that Tim has in strategic planning, board governance, capital development and operational support,” said Board Chair Victoria Herzberg. “Tim is passionate about the Y and he understands our mission to strengthen individuals, families and community by developing spirit, mind, and body. He also has demonstrated experience working as a CEO for a similar sized YMCA.”
