Our Scout LEADERS
Favorite SCOUT: Harriet Chalmers Adams
Harriet could do everything. Her talents in writing and photography took her all over the world from South America to Asia and the South Pacific. She’s best known for her bravery, as she was the only female journalist permitted to visit the trenches during World War I.
President, Chief Strategy Officer
Favorite SCOUT: Isabella Bird
Never satisfied with settling down, she was an explorer, writer, photographer and naturalist at a time when most women were encouraged to be none of those. As the first woman invited to join the Royal Geographic Society, Isabella's travels took her to Asia, Hawaii and the Middle East. She was even planning to see China at age 72, before she died.
VP, Managing Creative Director
Favorite SCOUT: Nellie Bly
Nellie was a real-life Jules Verne character. Dissatisfied with the drivel of writing for the society and art pages, she pioneered a new kind of journalism which led her to circumnavigate the world in 72 days, the record at the time. Where there was no path, she made one all over the world.
VP, Group Account Director
Favorite SCOUT: Gertrude Ederle
She was the first woman to swim the length of New York Bay, and broke the men’s record while doing so. It took until her second attempt because her coach made her stop during the first. Her response to that coach? She fired him because she “knew it could be done” and it “had to be done.”
VP, Talent Management
Favorite SCOUT: Sacagawea
Perhaps one of the more famous SCOUTs in history, Sacagawea was a key part of the Lewis and Clark expeditions as their translator. She navigated difficult terrain from North Dakota to California while carrying her infant son born just two months before they departed.
VP, Creative Technology
Favorite SCOUT: Yuri Gagarin
Not only was Yuri the first person to go to space and safely return, he did it before he was 30. He was also the first person to orbit the planet. It only took him 89 minutes.
