Executive Message




After a comprehensive nationwide search, the YMCA at Pabst Farms Association welcomed Jon Lange as our new CEO in August of 2015.

Jon’s Y career began at the age of 16 as a summer camp counselor for the YMCA Camp Minikani. After college, Jon joined the Y professionally, starting the Door County YMCA and later becoming CEO of the Kettle Moraine Y in West Bend. In 2011, Jon led the Missoula Family YMCA in Montana. While there, he more than doubled operating revenues, raised funds for a $445K renovation of their Health and Wellness Center without debt and restructured their annual campaign increasing funding by 29%.

Having been born and raised in Greendale and a graduate of UW-Milwaukee Jon is happy to have returned to his home state to lead our Y. “There is a tremendous legacy here, one I am excited to be a part of and help grow.  We’ve got so many possibilities.”
