Paul Biondi was elected this week to lead the board of directors for the Princeton YMCA.

Biondi has been a member of the board  since April of 2011. He chaired the board’s finance committee for two years, and has been a key member of the executive committee.

Prior to joining the YMCA’s board of directors, Biondi’s and his family were members of the YMCA when his three children attended the organization’s child development center as preschoolers.

“Ironically it wasn’t until I joined the board that I came to understand and really appreciate what the Y does for the greater community. Very few people know that the Y gives back more than $450,000 annually through financial assistance, subsidies and free programs,” Biondi said. “The Y offers opportunities for people of all ages and circumstances – ranging from free early learning programs for young children and their caregivers, to free wellness programs to individuals with limited resources.”

Biondi replaces David Sandahl, who served who served the YMCA as chair for nine years, and as a member of the board of directors for more than 20 years..

He said his goals as chairman include helping others understand how important the YMCA’s mission is to the community, expanding the YMCA’s reach and programs, and getting more people involved in the YMCA.

Biondi is senior vice president for research and development at Bristol-Myers Squibb. He holds a bachelor’s degree in government and economics from Dartmouth College and an M.B.A. from J.L. Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. He lives in Skillman with his wife Carolyn and three children, Charlie, Marion and Ben. He is a member of Trinity Episcopal Church of Rocky Hill.
