NEW WESTMINSTER, BC, Oct. 11, 2023 — The YMCA BC Board of Directors is pleased to introduce Sagar Saxena as an incoming member of the Board, effective Sept. 27, 2023.
Based in Prince George, Saxena is engaged in multiple business enterprises and not-for-profit organizations throughout British Columbia. He also has previous experience in YMCA governance, having served on the YMCA of Northern BC Board of Directors in 2021 and 2022.
“It is with great excitement that the Board welcomes Sagar Saxena as a new Director,” said YMCA BC Board Chair Greg D’Avignon. “Sagar’s connections to Northern BC, his commitment to bettering his communities and his past involvement with the Y make him an excellent addition to the YMCA BC Board.”
Since moving to British Columbia in 2014 from India, much of Saxena’s work has centered on impact-driven investments, creating opportunities for rural economic development and empowering youth. This includes his work in founding or providing leadership to new ventures. Saxena was named to the Prince George Chamber of Commerce’s Top 40 Under 40 list in 2018 and has dedicated his time to many other boards and organizations beyond the YMCA. These include current Board appointments with the Women’s Enterprise Centre of BC and the Our Satya Foundation.
Saxena is assuming the vacancy created by Pat Flack’s departure from the Board earlier in 2023. Flack resigned from his role in the spring following 20 years in volunteer governance service with the YMCA.
