Gustavo J. Vollmer Herrera of the Asociación de Scouts de Venezuela is a civil engineer who served on the World Scout Committee of the World Organization of the Scout Movement from 1963 to 1969 and again from 1973 to 1979.
In 1969, Vollmer was awarded the Bronze Wolf, the only distinction of the World Organization of the Scout Movement, awarded by the World Scout Committee for exceptional services to world Scouting, at the 22nd World Scout Conference. He also received the Silver Buffalo in 1965.
Vollmer is the oldest surviving member of the Vollmer clan in Venezuela, the country's oldest business dynasty. Although extremely low profile, the Vollmer family maintains an active management role handling the operations of the Santa Teresa Rum company located in El Consejo, Aragua, as well as Grupo Palmar, a vast sugar mill and plantation Vollmer owns in neighboring El Palmar, Aragua. To conclude, the Vollmer family also leads and controls Mercantil Servicios Financieros, the country's second largest financial institution.
