Biography

Meridith Maskara is Chief Executive Officer of the Girl Scouts of Greater New York. In this role, she leads an enthusiastic and committed 60-person team as they work to realize a clear vision: a New York City in which every girl feels empowered to lead in her community, the workplace, and the world. Prior to serving in her current position, Meridith has been a part of the Girl Scout movement in many ways: as a girl member in Maine, a troop leader in Queens, and staff member of the Girl Scouts of Greater New York, serving as VP, Product Programs and COO from 2015-2017, and now CEO. As a third generation Girl Scout, a mom raising five incredible girls, and a Girl Scout troop leader for more than ten years, Meridith has seen firsthand that no other organization or institution in a girl’s life can offer the same opportunities, or the same community, as Girl Scouts. In her time at the Girl Scouts of Greater New York, Meridith oversaw the launch of Troop 6000, a Girl Scout troop specially designed to serve girls living in the New York City shelter system. She also founded the Cookie Executive Committee: a program that provides special professional development opportunities and seeks input from top cookie sellers. Under her leadership, the organization has grown to serve over 31,000 girls. Since assuming her post as Chief Executive Officer, Meridith has received a New York City Council Citation for the Queens Impact Award and a New York City Council St. Pats for All Community Leadership Award Citation for her work with youth in her community. She was honored by Congressman Crowley with the 2018 Community Impact Award; was included on Brown Brothers Harriman’s ‘18 Women to Watch in 2018’ list; was named a 2018 SPOKEies Award winner, honoring leaders who communicate honestly and effectively on behalf of their organization; and was recognized in 2018 by City & State as one of the Responsible 100 in the category of philanthropy and non-profits. Prior to turning her passion for Girl Scouting into a career, Meridith graduated from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. Her love for theatre combined with her operational and business sense led her to a highly successful corporate career in theatrical/entertainment and event merchandising and branding where she spent 17 years as a Vice President at one of the industry’s leading companies, Max Merchandising. Meridith, her husband Dan, and their five daughters, Dorothy, Vivien, Veronica, Natalie and Marlene, are happiest traveling the country in their camper and are known in their community for their elaborate Halloween display. Other family interests include musical theater, ballet, dinosaurs, horror movies, and community activism.
