Roger C. Mosby is the President and CEO of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), having succeeded the retiring Michael B. Surbaugh on December 29, 2019. He was previously Vice President of Human Resources for Kinder Morgan. Born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, his parents and family moved to Union County, Illinois where he attended elementary and high school. He graduated from Shawnee High School in Wolf Lake, Illinois, going on to Southeast Missouri State University earning a Bachelor of Science in 1973.
Bucking practice, the Boy Scouts selected Mosby, not a professional scouter, as their President and CEO. He does not bear the title Chief Scout Executive as that title is reserved for professional scouters with specific training. Though not a Scout professional, Mosby was a youth member in the Egyptian Council (Union County, Illinois), a longtime volunteer in the Mid-America and Sam Houston Area councils. Mosby has also worked at the regional and national level of the BSA. He also volunteered with the World Organization of the Scout Movement.
Prior to his selection as the President and CEO he ran his own consulting firm after retiring as an energy industry executive.
Mosby has been recognized with the Silver Beaver Award, Silver Antelope Award, and the Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow.
