Haddock Out at Interim CEO at Sault YMCA

John Haddock is no longer the CEO of the Sault Ste. Marie YMCA.

In a release dated May 10th, “The Board of Directors of the Sault Ste. Marie YMCA thanked John Haddock for his commitment and dedication to the YMCA as he makes a transition from his role as interim CEO, as of Friday, May 10.”

Over many years and in various roles with the YMCA, Haddock has been dedicated to helping build a healthier Sault Ste. Marie community.

“This leadership transition was always planned. When John assumed the interim role of CEO in November 2023, the intention was that it would be a short-term appointment to support the organization as we explored options to sustain our operations.”

Haddock brought with him both a long history of YMCA leadership as well as deep connection to the Sault Ste. Marie community, and he has worked tirelessly to support staff and explore options for our charity. The Board said.

The Board of Directors is focused on what’s next with our municipal and community partners.

In the immediate term, during this pivotal time of planning for the future, the Board of Directors and staff will be supported in an advisory capacity by YMCA Ontario’s Regional Development Centre. This is a common practice for YMCAs undergoing leadership transitions and is supported by the City of Sault Ste. Marie.

The SSM YMCA remains committed to growing the membership to continue to allow essential
programming for the Community and looks forward to working with Community partners to ensure long term success.
