MIAMI, April 25, 2014 – Executive search and recruitment firm Segrera Associates today announced its president and CEO Carlos Segrera received the YMCA of Greater Miami’s inaugural Segrera-Rubin Award. Named after Segrera, the award honors young professionals who give selflessly of their time and talent to advance the mission of the Y and leave a lasting impression on the lives of the children and families the organization serves.
Segrera co-founded the YMCA’s Young Professionals Network in 2010 to introduce up-and-coming professionals to “The Y” and engage them, early in their careers, in the organization’s range of community-building activities. Today, more than 120 young professionals actively participate in the group, which also provides its members with a range of professional-development and networking opportunities. The organization continues to grow each year, with current membership up 35 percent over the prior year.
“Carlos represents the commitment and passion non-profit organizations need to develop new generations of volunteer leaders who can carry each organization’s distinct mission and vision,” said Ralph Yohe, interim CEO of the YMCA of Greater Miami. “By establishing the Young Professionals Network and providing his time and experience to assist the YMCA in fulfilling its goals, Carlos serves as an inspiration for others to give back and take on leadership roles that impact the communities where they live.”
In addition to co-founding the Y’s Young Professionals Network, Segrera also helped to establish the organization’s Community Service Committee in 2012, and he currently serves as a member of the YMCA’s board of directors and chair of its Executive Compensation Committee.
