The Silver Bay YMCA Board of Trustees names Steve Tamm as its Chief Executive Officer effective June 29, 2015. His appointment follows a comprehensive and extensive search for a new leader for this mission-driven, nonprofit organization.

“Steve is the right leader at the right time for Silver Bay,” says Dr. Richard Cost, board chairperson. His passion for Silver Bay’s mission was evident in our conversations with him, and we look forward to serving with someone of his professional caliber and personal commitment to our mission.”

Tamm comes to Silver Bay from the CAMP-of-the-WOODS, a year-round family retreat and conference center in Speculator, New York. He served in many positions there, most recently as the Vice President for Operations and Marketing.

Prior to his work at CAMP-of-the-WOODS, Tamm had an extensive career in aviation, with expertise in international operations and logistics. As Senior Vice President for the Americas at Swissport Cargo Services, he managed an annual budget of $145 million and oversaw a staff of 2500 union and non-union employees.

Tamm has a B.S. in Marketing from St. John’s University in New York City and an MBA from the College of St. Joseph in Vermont, where he also taught at the undergraduate and graduate levels.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Silver Bay team. It is an honor and privilege to come alongside a set of professionals who have a passion for the members, summer staff and community as a whole,” says Steve. “It is my hope and desire that together we will continue to build upon the legacy that has been forged over the last 113 years and be good stewards of those many blessings.”

Steve lives in Queensbury with his wife, Nancy, who works as an aquatics instructor at the Glens Falls YMCA. Steve and Nancy have two daughters, Ellen and Olivia.
