Matt Hyde is Chief Executive of the Scouts, the UK’s largest coeducational youth movement.

Formerly Chief Executive of the National Union of Students (NUS), he has undertaken a number of leadership roles in the charity sector and as Chief Executive of the Scouts has contributed to a period of record membership growth since he joined in 2013.

He has overseen the development and delivery of two major strategic plans, a rebrand, award-winning campaigns and has spearheaded work to support the growth of Scouting in areas of deprivation.
