Chloe Kembery is joining the Scouts after three years at the British Council where she currently leads communications overseeing campaigns in education and culture including the global partnership with the BBC World Service.

At the museum, she created the campaign that unveiled its new whale Hope in its central hall and sent its Diplodocus on a UK tour to inspire the next generation.
Chloe Kembery said:
“From outdoors adventures through to the recent Hike to the Moon, Scouts has an outstanding reputation for inspiring young people to try new things and build skills for life. It is a privilege to be joining such a passionate team of volunteers and colleagues. Heading into this role I look forward to working with them on new ways to share the Scout story and growing the Movement so that any child who wants to Scout can have that chance.”
Until recently Kris Murali was Deputy CEO of disability charity, Sense, and comes with a highly distinguished career having led finance and wider corporate services functions, working in a number of sectors. At Sense, Kris managed the corporate support services including governance and also the trading portfolio of 115 Charity shops and oversaw Sense International operating in eight countries.
