Boys & Girls Clubs Of Santa Monica Announces New CEO:

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica, serving the community since 1944, has announced the selection of Tim Blaylock, as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Blaylock will fill the vacancy created by Aaron Young’s departure to join the Pacific Youth Foundation earlier this year, and Michelle Arellano, who has served as the interim CEO. The selection was made after a comprehensive national search and selection process. ​The appointment will begin on Jan. 5, 2015. ​

“We feel very fortunate that an individual such as Tim Blaylock,” said Paul Gaulke, the Chairman of the Board of Governors. “With his vast experience and success as CEO of other Boys and Girls Clubs over the years, was so keen on becoming our Club’s leader. Our board looks forward to a long and productive working relationship with Mr. Blaylock, as we continue in our efforts to seamlessly serve the children and teens in our community through programs and services that provide hope, confidence, and opportunities that will yield great futures.”

Blaylock most recently was the Director of Organizational Development for Major Metro Clubs in the Pacific Region for Boys & Girls Clubs of America, after an award-winning career leading Clubs in Washington State and Oxnard/Port Hueneme.

His lifelong focus has been on serving young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

In addition, Blaylock is an alumnus of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Ventura.

His extensive experience in organization development and systems, strategic planning, marketing, communications and philanthropy has garnered several recognitions, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) 2003 Executive of the Year for the 9-State Pacific Region, a BGCA Horizon Award in 2013, and over the years, his organizations have won numerous marketing and programming awards.

Blaylock has served on many committees related to children’s issues in Ventura County and chaired the BASICO commission. 

He was an Executive Steering committee member of the P-16 commission for the County Department of Education in Ventura County. Blaylock earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Washington State University. He is an avid reader and believes strongly that education is the greatest equalizer for our young people.

He has been quoted as saying, “Together we achieve more for our greatest asset, OUR children.”

“I’m grateful for the opportunity the Board of Directors has given me to lead this wonderful organization that does important work for the youth that need us most,” said Blaylock. “I look forward to working with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica Staff Team and Board to further our mission and grow the organization. I also look forward to creating partnerships and collaborations with other organizations in the community to serve children at the highest possible level. For as James Baldwin states so very well, ‘These are all of our Children, we will profit by or pay for whatever they become.'”
