The YMCA of the Brandywine Valley, which has a branch in Kennett Square, announced a new board chairman on Monday, according to a news release.
Joseph Viscuso, vice president of Pennoni Associates in West Chester, was elected by the Brandywine Valley Board of Directors at the YMCA’s annual meeting in April. He succeeds outgoing Chairman John A. Featherman III, the release said.
An involved volunteer with the YMCA, Viscuso served on the Property Development Committee for four years. “I’m honored to be a part of this great organization,” said Viscuso. “Our association is serving a record 58,000 members across Chester County.

A graduate of Widener University in engineering, Viscuso earned a master’s degree in civil engineering from Villanova University, serves as an adjunct professor at Widener, and is on the advisory board of the university’s school of engineering.
