Please join us as we congratulate John H. Mosby, who will serve as Assistant Chief Scout Executive – Development, effective April 15, 2019.
John will bring proven leadership experience to support our staff and volunteer leadership in taking our development efforts to the next level. Aligning support for both National and local council initiatives has created synergy over the past several years and now, more than ever, expanded fundraising at all levels will provide the resources necessary to support our growing membership.
John began his Scouting career in 1990 as a district executive at the Heart of America Council in Kansas City, Missouri. He served in several positions at the council including program director, district director, assistant director of field service, and eventually director of field service. In 2001, he was selected as the Scout executive of the Illowa Council in Davenport, Iowa. From there, John moved on to become the Scout executive of the Northeast Illinois Council in Highland Park, Illinois and then the Narragansett Council in Providence, Rhode Island. John was then named the regional director of the Northeast Region, where he has successfully served since 2016.
John graduated with a bachelor of science in education and a minor in mathematics from Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri.
John is an Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow who enjoys running and bicycle racing.
John has two grown Eagle Scout sons, Tom and Jacob, and he has enjoyed serving over the years as their volunteer leader including treks to Philmont, the Florida Sea Base, and the National Jamboree.
In the comments below, please help us send John our best wishes as he assumes this new leadership role in the BSA. John brings tremendous energy and commitment to deliver the Scouting program to the youth of our Nation and we look forward to seeing how that enthusiasm will propel us forward in the years to come.
