Simon Youth Foundation has named Andrea Neely president and chief executive officer. She most recently served as regional development director for the United Negro College Fund.
“Andrea has a deep understanding of the needs, challenges, and opportunities facing young people in the education and workforce arenas today,” said SYF Board Chair Deborah J. Simon. “On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am confident she is the right leader to expand SYF into new markets, elevate SYF’s voice and presence nationally, and most importantly, inspire the students SYF serves to reach their full potential through education.”
Neely holds a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University.
