Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale (BGCS) selected Robyn Julien, third-generation Arizona native and known local non-profit leader, to fill the position of President & CEO. Julien comes from the Arizona Burn Foundation where she served as their CEO.
“It was top-of-mind for the organization to find someone who was locally-invested and respected,” said Allen Thompson, BGCS Board Chair. “We are incredibly impressed by Robyn’s past career accomplishments and her passion for our youth. We know she is a great fit for our organization.”
Julien’s experience and success with high-level fundraising in the Scottsdale and Phoenix area will be an asset for the next stage of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale.
“I am excited to join Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale’s team as their President & CEO,” said Robyn Julien, newly-named BGCS President & CEO. “It is evident that staff, Board members and volunteers are devoted to helping our kids, which makes this organization stand out. I believe that together we can keep making positive strides for our kids who rely on us.”
Julien is a Certified Public Accountant, working in public accounting at the beginning stages of her career. She has worked in non-profit development in the Valley for more than 10 years, spending time with the American Heart Association, Scottsdale Arts and, most recently, the Arizona Burn Foundation.
BGCS conducted a large-scale search to find their next leader after announcing that Dr. Lisa Hurst, previous President & CEO, had been selected to join the leadership team at Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
Julien’s first day with the organization is scheduled for Friday, June 29.
