The YMCA of Greater New York has named Sal Maglietta of Briarcliff Manor as its 2012 Volunteer of the Year, the organization has announced. He will be officially recognized and presented with the award on March 28 at the YMCA gala event at the Mariott Marquis in Manhattan.
Past honorees of this award have included actress Marcia Gay Harden, television personality Consuelo Mack, and attorney Glenn Lau-Kee.
Here is a portion of the YMCA’s announcement:
Maglietta’s commitment to the Y extends far beyond making personal financial contributions and his role on the YMCA board of directors. He has spent countless hours at Y leadership meetings and in Y branches speaking with staff and members; and providing his brainpower, insight, and creative energy toward making the annual Strong Kids campaign a glowing success.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the YMCA of Greater New York. The YMCA is an organization I am proud to be associated with because it’s open to everyone, promotes positive values and proactively supports kids, families and communities through a variety of programs,” said Sal Maglietta, executive vice president for U.S. Bank Specialized Industries & Finance. “I am also proud that U.S. Bank, under the leadership of Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Richard Davis, encourages its employees to be engaged with nonprofit organizations that benefit communities. Richard is also an advocate of the Y as a member of the Minneapolis YMCA board of directors.
“We are so proud of Sal’s ongoing commitment to the YMCA of Greater New York. As our wholesale banking presence continues to grow throughout the East Coast, US Bank is dedicated to giving back to organizations, like the Y, that help to build the foundations of the communities we serve,” said Richard Payne, vice chairman of U.S. Bank Wholesale Banking.
“Sal’s positive energy is contagious,” said Gary Laermer, chief development officer of the YMCA of Greater New York. “Under his leadership, Sal has rallied vital support for the Strong Kids Campaign. We are proud to present him with the 2012 Volunteer of the Year award.”
