Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) CEO Heads Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America has named Exxon Mobil (NYSE:XOM) Rex Tillerson as their new president.

Tillerson will become the 33rd president of the organization, which is 100 years old. Tillerson himself was once an Eagle Scout.

Now that he has officially stepped into his new role, one of his goals is to generate excitement about the 100th anniversary of the Scouts this year.

Tillerson said, “The investment with the greatest return is the one we make in our country’s youth. Scouting provides opportunities for young people to experience and understand the world around them — not only making them better citizens, but more successful contributors to the workforce. I can speak to the power of those lessons — I am a product of the Scouting program. I apply the values and principles I learned as a Scout on a daily basis.”
