Arvinda Gohil to replace Rosi Prescott as Central YMCA chief executive

Arvinda Gohil has been appointed CEO of Central YMCA.

Gohil joins the health and wellbeing charity from London-based Community Links, where she was CEO.

She brings extensive leadership experience in the charity sector, having held senior roles at Emmaus UK and the National Housing Federation, and was recently awarded an OBE for her services.

Gohil will take up her new position on 19 September and will replace the outgoing Rosi Prescott, who has spent the past 20 years at YMCA – more than 15 of them as CEO.

Prescott became the first female CEO in Central YMCA’s 150-year history in January 2004, when she replaced the late Rodney Cullum.

Mark Andrews, Central YMCA chair said: “Arvinda is a highly respected voice commentating on the third sector, its role in civil society and the contribution it makes to people’s lives.

"She will bring a wealth of social enterprise experience to Central YMCA and we all look forward to working with her."
