Please join us in welcoming Aimée Sproles as the next Chief Executive Officer of our council. She will join Girl Scouts of Western Ohio in December, succeeding Roni Luckenbill, who will retire at the end of the year.
Aimée is currently the Chief Operating Officer for Girl Scouts of San Jacinto in Houston, Texas. Like Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, the San Jacinto council is one of the largest Girl Scout councils in the country, serving more than 50,000 members in 26 counties in southeast Texas.
The board conducted an exhaustive national search to find the right leader for Girl Scouts of Western Ohio. Aimée’s passion for girls, women, and Girl Scouts shone through, as well as her extensive leadership experience.
“Aimée is a visionary leader. Her breadth of experience in operations and her deep understanding of and passion for Girl Scouts will build on the strong foundation of our council and propel it forward to help more girls discover the life-changing benefits of our program,” said Victoria Nilles, chair of Girl Scouts of Western Ohio’s board of directors.
During her 14-year tenure at Girl Scouts of San Jacinto, Aimée has successfully managed membership, programming, product program, property management, and more. She excels in developing and executing long-range strategic plans, problem-solving, and building and maintaining relationships. Aimée is highly regarded across the Girl Scout Movement and participates in many national leadership roles.
Prior to Girl Scouts, Aimée worked for IBM Global Services and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) Consulting. A Certified Public Accountant, she holds degrees from Trinity University in business administration and Russian. In 2021, she received a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace Certificate from the University of South Florida.
Aimée is a Lifetime Member of Girl Scouts, a Juliette Gordon Low Society member, and has fond memories of her time as a Brownie and Junior Girl Scout in Texas, learning gardening, camping with her troop, and delivering cookies on her 10-speed bike!
She is an active community volunteer, dedicating time to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, her faith community, and other youth development organizations.
“I am thrilled to join Girl Scouts of Western Ohio and follow in Roni’s footsteps," Aimée says. "I look forward to planting roots in southwestern Ohio and getting to meet the board, volunteers, families, donors, and partners that support and represent Girl Scouting in western Ohio and southeastern Indiana."
We are excited for the next two months as we celebrate Roni’s 44-year career with Girl Scouts and prepare to welcome Aimée and her husband Brandon to the Buckeye state!
