Yes , 2,3-dibromopentane is chiral. It has two chiral centres.
The two carbon atoms [2,3] to which bromine is attached to are chiral carbon atoms, as they are attached to four different groups.
Coming to centre of symmetry, the compound, 2,3-dibromopentane does not have a centre of symmetry.
 
Hope it clears....
