Tim Motts to Lead Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii

(Honolulu, HI—August 1, 2011)— Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii (BGCH) announced today that Tim Motts has been hired as the new executive director. Motts succeeds David Nakada, who has been at the organization's helm for 33 years.

"We've found a new leader who clearly understands BGCH's focus on developing the whole person — academic success, character and leadership development and healthy living," said David Hudson, president of the board. Motts will start August 15, 2011.

Motts is a lifelong non-profit sector professional who dedicated his career to serving young people and helping increase their educational and community engagement. His aim is to support the children of Hawaii to become the best students and citizens possible.

The search committee, led by retired Judge Michael Town, spent five months conducting a comprehensive national search process. Tim Motts was the final selection after very careful deliberation. The five-person committee worked with HR Solutions' Marie Kumabe to facilitate the search.

"I look forward to working with Tim;" said Hudson "it will be a compelling challenge for the board of directors to keep up with his energy and enthusiasm, as I know he will be a great asset for the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii."

For the past five years, Motts served as the chief professional officer (executive director) of the Boys & Girls Club of West San Gabriel Valley. During his tenure, Motts doubled the outreach and impact of the nonprofit. Like the current situation, Motts replaced a long-term, successful executive director, who had been an integral part of the community for more than three decades.

"Tim Motts is an ideal choice for Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii," said Nakada, "His commitment to youth is proven, and his dedication to inspiring kids will continue building our community legacy. I am confident in his ability to affirm this organizations' status as hugely relevant and effective."

Nakada will stay through the end of the year to assist with the transition. He then moves on to head a recently established project to assist start-up social services ventures dedicated to youth development.

Motts is married to Alison Duran Motts, whose father was born and raised on Oahu and extended family still resides in the islands. Alison will continue her years of experience in hospitality management, which began as a manager and sommelier for Disneyland Resort. They look forward to raising their two young sons, Jaxson Keahi and Gavin Kekoa, in the islands.

Boys & Girls Club of Hawaii (BGCH) is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring Hawaii's youth to become responsible citizens. BGCH operates nine sites on Oahu and Kauai.
