Paul Finstad

Paul served in multiple leadership positions throughout North Dakota prior to becoming president of the Fargo YMCA where he served for 25 years. Under his leadership the Y grew to serve over 55,000 people annually, with 1,000 staff, and a budget of $17 million dollars. 

During Paul’s 25 year tenure, he spearheaded $50 million in capital projects--including expanding to two fitness facilities, three summer camps, 30 school programs, and five early learning centers that serve 3,000+ kids per day. 

When not at Unseen, Paul loves to fish and boat, enjoying time with his wife, kids, and grandkids at the lake. He’s also a huge fan of the NDSU Bison football and serves at his church.
