ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Before Will Armstead became the Chief Executive Officer of Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County, in 2015, he served on the Board of Directors to help provide continual evaluation and strategic analysis of the operational standards and procedures for the Club. He has 20 plus years of cross-industry experience driving operational excellence and business development initiatives across multiple venues, including profit and non-profit. Will has been recognized as a “Gold Medal Jefferson Award” recipient for his commitment to multiple organizations that provide services and support to families, including BGCSLC, Alzheimer’s Community Care and PACE Center for Girls.

During his military career, which included two combat tours in Iraq, and in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, he often worked with children and families. His passion led him to gain a better understanding of what the children needed. Will states that, “There are 24-hours in a day. There’s plenty of time to give back to your community”.
