The Board of Directors of the Liberia Young Men Christian Association (YMCA) has appointed a new national secretary general and chief executive officer.
A press release from the YMCA in Monrovia said E. Timotheus Kamaboakai will take over as of May 1.
The appointment of Mr. Kamaboakai comes after the voluntary disengagement of Edward E. Gboe, who is expected to end his tenure as national secretary general on April 30.
Mr. Gboe headed the YMCA for eight years.
Mr. Kamaboakai holds a Master’s degree in Public Administration (MPA) with emphasis on non-profit management and strategic planning from the University of Minnesota, USA. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Sociology and social work from the United Methodist University in Monrovia.
He has served the institution as a staff in several capacities for the past 13 years and most recently, as development secretary, a position he held since 2012.
