Meet Jim Pyler, South Coast District Executive

We are very excited to be adding a new member to our field professional team. Jim Pyler is the new District Executive for the South Coast District of Los Padres Council starting April 1st.

Jim holds a degree in marketing, and brings many years of marketing experience, mainly in event coordination, messaging, public relations and negotiating. Jim is looking forward to working with you in efforts to recruit new scouts, and keep your existing scouts engaged in the program

For the past seven months Jim has worked for the Montana Council, Boy Scouts of America as a District Executive for both their Hi-Line and their Nu-Ooh-Ska districts. While in Montana Jim gained considerable experience understanding how the BSA works, and helped both districts enjoy significant gains in membership.

Like many of you Jim also have a son in scouting, and appreciates how our program has helped prepare him for life. Jim has watched his son grow from a reserved, somewhat insecure child to the confident young man that he is today. Jim credits a great deal of this to being a Boy Scout. Jim stated “To me, being a District Executive is more than just another job; it is a rewarding experience in terms of helping an organization that means so much to my son, and me, and in turn, helps inspire our nation’s future leaders.”

Jim has also worked as his son’s troop advancement chair for the past three years.  During my time in this position he learned a great deal about the regulations for scout advancement, as well as being knowledgeable of many scouting awards such as the STEM-based  (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Nova Awards and the National Outdoor Awards.

Jim is married with 2 children. While Jim's first day with us will be on April 1 please reach out to him and welcome him into our great council, his email address is

Thank you for the continued leadership you provide our youth. 

Yours in Scouting,
Carlos Cortez

Scout Executive
