Meet Anand Mehta
Anand Mehta retired in 2014 after 23 years of exceptional performance and service with the Boys and Girls Club of America, the nation's oldest and largest youth development organization. He was its senior vice president, CFO of financial services and assistant treasurer.
Brought up in a middle class family in India, he learned from his parents that hard work, ethics and higher education were the gateway to endless success in life. In pursuit of his dreams, he left his family, country and career with Price Waterhouse for the University of Central Missouri, where he earned his MBA in 1975.
In his years with the Boys and Girls Club, he helped to lead one of the fastest growing youth organizations in America, transforming the lives of millions of youths from disadvantaged circumstances, through generation-changing programs that serve some 4,000+ Boys and Girls clubs throughout the country and military bases overseas.
His career has involved progressively greater responsibilities and today includes oversight of financial management, strategic planning, accounting, budgeting and forecasting, auditing, risk management, grants and contracts management, and information systems. Anand prides himself on being a valued business partner to volunteer board members as they drive quality performance, on-time delivery and operating efficiency. His board experience includes directorships at BAPS Charities and Children’s Rights and You America, Inc.
