Logic 20/20 CFO Ellen Boyer is the incoming board chair for Friends of Youth (FOY).

Boyer’s involvement with FOY spans more than 20 years. She has held multiple tenures on the board of directors and served as board chair from 1997-9. FOY runs in the family as well — Boyer is FOY founder Iva Matsen’s granddaughter.

“Friends of Youth is starting a new chapter with new executive leadership,” Boyer said in a release. “They have incredible talent, and together I believe they and the board can take great strides toward achieving next year’s goals.”

Boyer sees the impact of FOY when donating meals at The Landing, FOY’s drop-in shelter in Redmond. She also regularly encourages friends and family to get involved with the organization.

“Friends of Youth has kept up with the constantly changing environment and needs of youth in order to stay true to its mission,” Boyer said in a release. “It is an honor to be part of this organization given the positive impact it makes in our community.”

FOY’s outgoing board chair Bill Savoy will remain on the board and assist in Boyer’s transition.

“Friends of Youth would not be where it is today without Bill’s leadership and dedication,” Boyer said in a release. “As he steps down from board chair, he leaves a set of shoes that no one will come close to filling.”
