The board of directors of the Lodi Boys and Girls Club has hired Paul Bonell, of Stockton, as the new CEO of the club.
He will replace Richard Jones, who is retiring as president and CEO after 18 years of service. Bonell, 50, will take over Dec. 12. He was chosen from a pool of 46 applicants, said J.P. Badel, chairman of the board. What made Bonell stand out was his extensive financial and business background, he said.
