Meet the Leaders

Cubmaster: Richard Carter

Richard moved to GA in 1991. He went to UGA and loves to fish. He now owns a business building ponds and waterfalls, is an avid outdoorsman and was in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts as a kid. Believe it or not, he even used to have long hair!

Assistant Cubmaster: Brian Duke

Brian is a graduate of Georgia Tech and works in the IT industry providing consulting services around management, strategy and security. He joined Pack 1714 in 2017 and now has two sons in the Lions and Bears Dens.

Brian is an Eagle Scout from Troop 320 and a strong believer in the life skills that Scouting can teach to our young boys and girls. In today’s age of digital technology that absorbs everyone’s time, Scouting provides a great opportunity for kids to put that aside for a moment and learn about the great outdoors. Brian embraces the Pack’s motto of Taking it Outdoors at every opportunity!

Committee Chairman: Jonathan Reeves

Jonathan Reeves began as an assistant Tiger Den Leader in 2017. He is a Marietta native that grew up in the Scouting program, and enjoys the outdoors. He also enjoys spending time with his four children, and being an active volunteer in the community. With a background in mechanical engineering, he works to help erect the skyline of Atlanta one building at a time. Other hobbies include golf, cycling, fishing, camping and woodworking!

Committee Treasurer: David Barry

David Barry has reconnected with Scouting with his son Dave, who joined Pack 1714 in 2017. David earned his Eagle Scout rank while growing up in Amarillo, Texas and moved to the Atlanta area in 2015. David can remember long, windy bike rides in the Texas panhandle in pursuit of his cycling merit badge. So far, his favorite adventure with the Cub Scout Pack has been a spelunking trip to Cumberland Caverns in Eastern Tennessee.

Committee Secretary: Jennifer Galloway

Jennifer has lived in the metro Atlanta area since 1998. Being married to a camper and backpacker, she knew her boys would be involved in Scouting. Her first round in Pack 1714 was with her son Parker, who is working towards his Eagle with Troop 277. Now with her son Jensen being a member of Pack 1714, she’s been recruited as Secretary. Her goal is to make sure parents are aware of all the great events and outings the Scouts can participate in.

Lions Den Leader: Richard Carter

In addition to being our Cubmaster, Richard is also our Lions Den leader.

Tigers Den Leader: Wes Pate

Wes grew up in Ellenwood, Georgia and then spent his 20s and early 30s in Boston. He and his family relocated back to Georgia in 2018 and loves being back home. He enjoys the outdoors and all it has to offer- fishing, hunting, water skiing, and youth baseball to name a few. Wes works as a portfolio manager for an investment firm and has a degree in finance from Georgia State University, an MBA from Boston University and is presently wrapping up a Masters in Accounting from University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He was in Scouts for a short period as a child in GA and is enjoying watching his son enjoy it as he did as a child.

Wolves Den Leader: Ryan Teel

Ryan grew up in Southern California and moved to GA in 1995 and graduated from Kennesaw State with a degree in Biochemistry. He works as an analytical chemist in the pharmaceutical industry. Ryan loves music, camping, hiking, fishing, and really just being outdoors whenever possible. He loves to visit the National Parks with his family and enjoys the varied and beautiful landscape of this country.

Anthony currently works in the IT industry providing network and desktop support to businesses. He is also currently working on completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Aviation and aspires to be a commercial pilot in the near future. He believes Scouting is a great way to instill a “can do” attitude in our youth and teach them how to be positive contributors to society while having loads of fun in the outdoors.
