Rebecca Asmo, Small Non-Profit CEO of the Year
When Rebecca Asmo was hired as CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbus in 2010, the organization served 2,000 youth at two sites and had an operating budget of $750,000. Now, eight years later, Asmo has grown the organization to 11 sites with an operating budget of $4M, serving 6,000+ youth throughout the city.
When it comes to leading the organization, Rebecca does not subscribe to a particular leadership philosophy. “I just try every day to show up, do the best I can and do what’s best for kids.” Asmo hopes that receiving this honor will help fuel future growth, enabling the organization to serve even more youth in need.
