November 6, 2023:

"The BSA’s CEO search process began in the spring of 2023 with the selection of Korn Ferry, which used a robust and inclusive process involving a range of BSA stakeholders. This group, which included representatives from throughout our movement including youth, scout executives, and BSA alumni, was tasked with providing feedback to inform the search. In late October, the chief scout executive selection committee unanimously selected Krone to present to the BSA’s National Executive Committee (NEC) and National Executive Board (NEB).

“Roger Krone has spent his entire career transforming complex businesses and preparing them for what lies ahead,” said Brad Tilden, who serves as the BSA’s national chair. “His experience, combined with his personal passion for scouting, will enable him to look at a familiar organization in new ways and find innovative approaches to welcoming more youth into the adventure of Scouting. Our movement could not be more excited to welcome him as our new leader.”

Korn Ferry has previously recruited Girl Scout executives, e.g., Sofia Chang and has a senior partner Lorraine Hack as a Member-at-large on the 30 member GSUSA National Board of Directors.
