Announcement of Scouts NSW Chief Commissioner (2023-2026)

The Scouts NSW Board is delighted to announce that with the support of the Chief Scout of NSW – Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beazley AC KC, the Chief Scout of Australia – His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd)., has appointed Lloyd Nurthen to the role of Chief Commissioner for Scouts Australia NSW.

With a career spanning 22 years in the Scouting movement, Lloyd exemplifies the incredible benefits of Scouting and the profound impact our movement has on many thousands of young people on a daily basis.

Lloyd has impressive leadership experience, a strategic mindset and the ability to positively impact others with his energy and passion.

He has volunteered as the NSW State Youth Commissioner, has attended the World Scout Conference in 2021, and is the Deputy Contingent Leader for the 25th World Scout Jamboree in 2023 to South Korea.

Lloyd has been involved in several committees including the Public Funds Committee of the Board. He was a member of the Youth Program Review and is currently serving as the State International Commissioner for Scouts NSW and an Assistant Group Leader in his local Group.

Lloyd is currently employed full-time as the Global Customer Experience Manager for an aerial imagery and location intelligence technology company, were he focuses on finding ways to improve the Customer Experience across the company and help drive growth and retention. This makes him a relatable role model for many of our adult volunteers who commit to their Scouting activities while managing multiple other commitments.

Neville Tomkins OAM JP will work with Lloyd prior to conducting a formal handover of duties in early April. We will thank Neville at that time for his tireless contribution to Scouts NSW as our Chief Commissioner since 2016.

Please join us in congratulating Lloyd on his appointment!
