The YMCA of Rock River Valley is pleased to announce Bobby Reitsch, Executive Director of Development at the YMCA of Rock River Valley, was recently named one of the 2022 40 under 40 by the Rockford Chamber of Commerce.
Highlighting individuals who are compelling, interesting, and “doers”, 40 under 40 honorees are people who have distinguished themselves in their professional field or organization, are engaged citizens, and provide leadership by volunteering their time and talents to community groups and causes.
40 under 40 began in 2008 and, including this year’s class, has honored 240 leaders since then. This year’s class is comprised of men and women representing a variety of industries, including health care, government, nonprofits, finance, education, and professional services. Honorees are business leaders who impact their respective organizations and industries and who positively affect the local business environment.
Bobby is a fresh addition to the YMCA of Rock River Valley, and he brings more than six years of fund development expertise to the organization. He is responsible for overseeing annual campaign activities, and securing funding for the many youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility programs the YMCA is proud to offer to the community. Away from work, Bobby serves as the President of the IGNITE Business Networking Group (BNG) and as the BNG Liaison for the IGNITE Young Professionals Group. He enjoys swimming, testing his skills in the kitchen, traveling to new locales, and spending time with his family and friends.
“I am extremely honored to be a part of this prestigious group of individuals who are making a difference in the Rockford community each and every day,” said Bobby. “I am grateful to my nominators and the Rockford Chamber of Commerce for this special recognition.”
