Meridith Maskara is Chief Executive Officer of the Girl Scouts of Greater New York. In this role, she leads an enthusiastic and committed 60-person team as they work to realize a clear vision: a New York City in which every girl feels empowered to lead in her community, the workplace, and the world.
Prior to serving in her current position, Meridith has been a part of the Girl Scout movement in many ways: as a girl member in Maine, a troop leader in Queens, and staff member of the Girl Scouts of Greater New York, serving as VP, Product Programs and COO from 2015-2017, and now CEO.
As a third generation Girl Scout, a mom raising five incredible girls, and a Girl Scout troop leader for more than ten years, Meridith has seen firsthand that no other organization or institution in a girl’s life can offer the same opportunities, or the same community, as Girl Scouts.
In her time at the Girl Scouts of Greater New York, Meridith oversaw the launch of Troop 6000, a Girl Scout troop specially designed to serve girls living in the New York City shelter system. She also founded the Cookie Executive Committee: a program that provides special professional development opportunities and seeks input from top cookie sellers. Under her leadership, the organization has grown to serve over 31,000 girls.
