Gary Kuenzilli joined the YMCA when he was nine-years-old, and spent all 33 years of his professional career in the YMCA of Metropolitan Los Angeles (Calif.). He was hired in 1960 as a program director in the San Fernando Valley, and eight years later was the founding executive director of the Torrence-South Bay Branch. He joined the corporate staff of the Los Angeles YMCA as vice president for branch financial development, and served as the first director of the Southern California Management Resource Center from 1976 until his retirement in 1994. Throughout this career, he was able to combine his skills as a trainer, writer, and organizer. An advocate of applying modern management theory, Kuenzli wrote articles, monographs, manuals, catalogues, and training designs that were used in YMCAs all over the world. He served one term as national chair of the YMCA Association of Professional Directors (APD) and chaired two APD national conferences. In retirement, he continued to write on YMCA issues and continued traveling as a volunteer trainer for YMCAs across the country.
