December 10, 2014 -- After a months-long search, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica selected a new chief executive officer who brings national experience and a long stint in the Oxnard area to the job, club officials announced Tuesday.

Tim B. Blaylock, who most recently held a top post for the regional Boys and Girls Clubs of America, will begin January 5, officials said.
Blaylock will fill the vacancy created by Aaron Young, who resigned in June to join the Pacific Youth Foundation. In 2009, Young had replaced his father, Allan Young, who had headed the Santa Monica Club for nearly 40 years.
Michelle Arellano has been serving as interim CEO, the statement said.
Blaylock comes to Santa Monica after serving as director of organizational development for the Major Metro Clubs in the Pacific Region, which includes California, Arizona, Oregon, Nevada and Utah.
That followed a career leading Boys & Girls Clubs in Washington State and Oxnard/Port Hueneme, officials said.

In addition, Blaylock is an alumnus of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Ventura. His awards include Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) 2003 Executive of the Year for the 9-State Pacific Region and a BGCA Horizon Award in 2013. He has also won numerous marketing and programming awards.

Blaylock “strongly believes that education is the greatest equalizer for our young people,” a statement release Tuesday said. “He has been quoted as saying, ‘Together we achieve more for our greatest asset, our children.’ ”

Blaylock’s  lifelong focus has been on serving young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, according to the statement.

Blaylock is an outsider by comparison to the organization’s two previous leaders.
Allan Young, widely considered an institution at the Boys and Girls Club, started with the organization in the 1960s, before becoming president and chief executive officer in 1977.

His son, Aaron, assumed the post 37 years later.
