Lyles to lead Milwaukee Boys & Girls Clubs

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee announced that Vincent Lyles, current president of M&I Community Development Corp. (CDC), has been named president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee, effective Jan. 2, 2012.
The announcement comes after a four-month national search. Lyles will replace Jim Clark, who in June was named the president and CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) effective Jan. 2. Clark will continue in the role of president and CEO of the Milwaukee Clubs and work with Lyles until the end of 2011 to ensure a smooth leadership transition. 
Lyles has been on the forefront of revitalizing some of the poorest neighborhoods and areas most in need in Milwaukee and across the nation. In his current role as the president of M&I Community Development Corp. (CDC), Lyles grew M&I CDC’s investment portfolio from $53 million to approximately $130 million. Prior to joining M&I, Lyles was a director at Robert W. Baird & Co. where he provided financial advice to Wisconsin municipalities, school districts and special taxing units.
"Vincent’s proven track record of serving those most in need in our community and his solid reputation in both the business and government communities thoroughly impressed our search committee," said David Radtke, board chairman of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee and co-chair of the search committee. "We believe Vincent is the right person to provide leadership and continue the Milwaukee Club’s mission in our community."
"It is an honor to have been selected to lead Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee. I have tremendous respect for the longstanding commitment of the organization to the young people it serves," Lyles said. "I have enjoyed what I have been able to do at M&I Community Development Corp., but I am looking forward to giving young people in this community the opportunity to achieve great futures.”
