Heart of New England Council is pleased to announce that Todd Lamison, Scout Executive of Mississippi Valley Council in Quincy, Illinois has been selected to be the new Scout Executive of Heart of New England Council. He will assume the post effective November 1.

Mr. Lamison began his Scouting career in Patriots Path council in New Jersey where he served as a District Executive, Senior District Executive, District Director and Field Director. He went on to serve as Assistant Scout Executive in Jersey Shore Council before advancing to Scout Executive in Mississippi Valley Council. He brings with him a track record of membership and financial growth, and experience in managing multiple camp properties.

For the last several years, including through the merger process, Nashua Valley and Mohegan councils have benefitted from the the experience and guidance of two exceptional Scouting professionals, Jeff Hotchkiss and Gary Savignano. We are grateful to both of them for the support they have provided our councils over the past seven years, and the hard work they have invested in making our new council a reality. They leave a legacy of six years of membership growth and some of the highest retention in the nation, a revitalized Treasure Valley Scout Reservation, and a staff team positioned for success. We thank them for their leadership and wish them well on the next step of their Scouting trail.
