Mount Diablo Region YMCA Names Local Business Leader, Susan Trainer, to Its Corporate Executive Board
Date:1/21/2008

New Board Member Adds Operations and Marketing Expertise During a Key

Growth Period for the Association

PLEASANT HILL, Calif., Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mt. Diablo Region YMCA today announced the appointment of Susan Trainer, chief executive officer and founder, Trainer Communications, to its Corporate Executive Board of Directors. She joins the board at a pivotal time for the Y, which is in the middle of a major capital fundraising campaign to rebuild and revise its four sites.

"Having Susan join the board is a great coup for the YMCA. She brings with her the strategic vision and expertise to help us bring our rebuilding campaign to a successful conclusion," said Mike Erwin, president and CEO, Mt. Diablo Region YMCA. "We welcome this industry leader to our outstanding corporate executive board and appreciate the wealth of knowledge she brings to the association. There is an urgent need for new centers and new programs in Contra Costa County. Our mission -- to support our communities, including at-risk critical teen and senior populations, as well as all of our families and children -- requires active support and the right people to help ensure that much-needed programs are built, and Susan truly fits that definition."

Susan Trainer established Trainer Communications in 1995 to support some of the most prominent emerging technology companies with cutting-edge marketing communications services. Since that time, the agency has become the seventh largest privately held communications agency in the greater Bay Area; one of the Top 10 agencies to work for in the United States, according to a 2004 Holmes report; and has won numerous industry awards. Trainer Communications has played an integral role in generating high-profile strategic results for more than 100 startups and enterprise companies. Trainer began her career at computer hardware giant Telex and continued there through the company's merger with Memorex as the combined company became a $2 billion entity called Memorex Telex. While with Memorex Telex, she supported hundreds of product announcements, a corporate restructuring, and dozens of acquisitions. In 1993, Trainer joined Sybase, Inc., where she was accountable for introducing and managing communications for strategic System 10 products such as Replication Server and Navigation Server, the first major corporate partnership with IBM, and the company's first sponsorship of the World Cup.

"A powerful business leader, Susan will bring a lot of energy, connections, and knowledge to our board," said Robert Waldron, Board Chairman of the Mt. Diablo Region YMCA Executive Board of Directors and regional CEO of Sagemark Consulting. "This is a vitally important time for the Y, and we need people like Susan to work hand-in-hand with the other board members and the YMCA management team to ensure that we reach our goals and meet the needs of the communities and populations the Y serves."

The YMCA Executive Board of Directors is responsible for developing the strategic vision, direction and business strategy that is the basis of the Y's five-year plan. The board determines where the Y needs to provide services and in what capacity; what programs need to be supported and which ones need to be developed; and helps direct the capital campaigns.

Mt. Diablo Region YMCA Sees Dramatic Growth 2002-2007

From 2002 through 2007, the Mt. Diablo Region YMCA tripled the number of families it served; created four new centers; and raised millions of dollars to build, update, and revise its facilities and programs. Today the four branches of the Mt. Diablo Region YMCA serve over 40,000 members in communities from Oakley to Orinda and Martinez to San Ramon. The only local organization to serve the entire family with an open-door policy, the Y is the largest provider of child-care services and after-school tutoring in Contra Costa County.

Following the capital fundraising campaign, titled "Together We Build," groundbreakings for new facilities at San Ramon Valley, Oakley, and Pleasant Hill's Irvin Deutscher Family YMCA facilities are scheduled to take place between this winter and the fall. In addition, the YMCA plans to expand programs and develop new services at all of its sites, including creating supervised segmented health and fitness environments for teens and seniors.
