We’re excited to introduce Bob Ryan, a dedicated member of our Board of Directors!
Children’s Place Association has greatly benefited from Bob’s involvement over the past twelve years, with ten of those years spent serving on our Board of Directors. Bob is the Owner/Operator of multiple Goldfish Swim School franchises throughout Chicago, New York, and Seattle. Before entering the swim school industry, Bob worked as a derivatives trader for fourteen years at Kingstree Trading. He holds an MBA from the University of Chicago and a BS from Marquette University. Bob resides in Wilmette with his wife, Kathy, and their two children.
Bob’s passion for CPA’s mission is truly inspiring. He says, “I am honored to be associated with Children’s Place Association and play a small role in fulfilling CPA’s mission to be a Champion for Chicago’s most vulnerable people. The CPA team’s commitment and effectiveness in handling the most pressing issues involving children in poverty facing health issues is truly inspiring!”
Cinaiya Stubbs, CEO & President of Children’s Place Association, adds, “Every nonprofit board needs a pinch hitter – a player who bats in place of a teammate, typically at a critical point in the game. This defines Bob completely. He is thoughtful and consistent and has an invisible battery pack because he’s always available when I call on him. CPA has been profoundly impacted by his twelve years of commitment and selflessness, and I look forward to his continued involvement.”
Join us in celebrating Bob, a pivotal member of our Board of Directors!
