New Scout Executive, Brian Curtis

This weekend, the council's Scout Executive Selection Committee met in Palo Alto to interview four quality professionals from the Scouting movement in order to choose one of them as Pacific Skyline Council's new Scout Executive and CEO. Although all four interviewed well, only one could be selected. Beginning on November 1st, the new Scout Executive of the Pacific Skyline Council will be Brian Curtis. Most recently, Brian has been serving as the Chief Operating Officer of the Los Angeles Area Council and comes to us with a wealth of experience. Please watch for more information concerning our new Scout Executive in the coming weeks.
