CEO of Stephens Family YMCA to retire at end of March

CHAMPAIGN — Mark Johnson, CEO of the Stephens Family YMCA in Champaign, will retire March 31, 2018, the organization's board announced.

A national search to replace him will begin in January.

Johnson, the University of Illinois' former head wrestling coach, joined the YMCA in 2009 as its CEO and played an important role in rebuilding the former Champaign County YMCA into the current Stephens Family YMCA, according to the board.

He began with an $18 million capital campaign, and the Stephens Family YMCA was built at 2501 Fields South Drive, C, under his leadership.
