The Club has ended its search for a new Chief Executive Officer. The board of directors recently voted Erin Reardon Antrim as its top choice to take charge of the Club, which annually serves more than 9,000 youth. A 10-year Club employee, Antrim has served as the Club’s interim chief executive officer since June 30.

“I am very excited to become the Club’s new chief executive officer,” said Antrim. “I am fortunate to have worked at the Club for the last 10 years. I am thrilled to be working with such dedicated staff, board of directors, and community partners. I look forward to continue serving the kids who need us most in our community and to elevate the great work we have been doing over the last 12 years under Tim Blaylock’s lead.”

Antrim joined the Club in 2004 as the Youth Empowerment Program project manager implementing a WIB grant that is still thriving within the Club. In 2006, she became the Club’s director of delinquency prevention, where she assisted in opening the first Boys & Girls Club in juvenile justice center in California and lead the charge to implement re-entry programs for our most needy youth within the juvenile justice facility. She was later promoted to director of program services, overseeing the administration of club-wide programs and developing an operating system for the newly opened teen center. For the past nine years, she has planned the national Day for Kids event.

“Erin is a passionate person who is dedicated to serving children in the Oxnard community. She has proven this over the last decade she has been working for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme,” said Richard Duarte, board president. “The panel of applicants was all very qualified, but Erin blew us away with her passion, knowledge and ideas for the future of the Club. We are very excited to have Erin lead the Club and look forward to working with her in her new position. She brings a continuity of exceptional leadership that will lead our Club to an even higher level of service to the youth of our community.”

A Ventura County native, Antrim has strong ties to the Oxnard community. Her father, John Reardon, was a long-time football coach at Rio Mesa High School and her mom was Miss Oxnard. She has a master’s degree in education and a pupil personal services credential from California Lutheran University and bachelor’s degree in liberal studies from San Diego State University. Erin and her husband Mike have two lovely children.
