Executive Search for Chief Executive Officer

Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas announces a search for the Chief Executive Officer for the organization.  We would like to identify qualified candidates for the Board to make a final selection.


Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas Council covers 26 counties from Victoria to Corpus Christi to Brownsville, Harlingen, McAllen and Laredo, Texas.

Our Girl Scout Leadership Experience is a one-of-a-kind leadership development program for girls, with proven results.  It is based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming that helps girls take the lead- in their own lives and the world.  Girl Scouts unleashes the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) in every girl, preparing her for a lifetime of leadership - from taking a night-time hike under the stars to accepting a mission on the International Space Station; from lobbing the city council with her troop to holding a seat in congress; from running her own business today to tackling cybersecurity tomorrow.
