About Nancy Nygren
CEO, Girl Scouts of Orange County 

As CEO of the Girl Scouts of Orange County, Nancy is focused on ensuring life-changing experiences for girls across Orange County and advancing the community’s understanding and appreciation of the value, importance and relevancy of Girl Scouting. Serving as CEO since 2005, Nancy champions leadership opportunities for over 23,000 Girl Scouts and training for more than 10,000 active volunteers across every zip code and neighborhood in Orange County. 

She has achieved extraordinary growth and increased revenue during her tenure, pairing an entrepreneurial spirit with a culture of discipline to build a constructive and collaborative culture where staff members are aligned around a clearly defined vision: to create the best leadership development experiences for all girls in Orange County.

Nygren has effectively implemented strategies at Girl Scouts that address a changing market, including cultural, systems, and process analyses. Her forward-thinking philosophies have shaped an enhanced business model that optimizes both the quality and quantity of leadership opportunities the Council’s Girl Scouts receive. Nygren was recently honored as one of the Orange County Business Journal’s top Women in Business. 

Nygren came to the Girl Scouts of Orange County with a vision that non-profits must embrace and integrate corporate best practices to thrive. Nancy’s career began in the aerospace industry where she was responsible for business development, project planning and operations, including the development of a winning proposal that yielded tens of millions of dollars of contracts. Prior to joining Girl Scouts, Nancy effectively led the design, construction and financing of OCEAN JOURNEY, a $93 million aquarium facility in Denver, Colorado and developed a regional center for science, art and culture as CEO of the Naval Training Center Foundation.
