Taronga Zoo marketing chief to rejoin Unicef

Zoo director of marketing, commercial and fundraising takes up marketing, fundraising and communications leadership post at Unicef

Taronga Zoo is searching for a new marketing and fundraising chief following the departure of Libby Hodgson after an 11-year stint.

Hodgson, who joined Taronga Zoo original as manager of memberships and digital in 2009 before rising to director of marketing, commercial and fundraising in late 2014, is leaving the organisation to take up a similar role and remit at Unicef. Her last day is 17 July.

In an email to colleagues and partners, Hodgson said it was a difficult decision to leave Taronga Zoo, a role she said “was the most fantastic role that has ever come my way”.

“I have more good memories and proud moments at Taronga than I could possibly mention. From centenary celebrations to digital innovations, research programs, brand re-launches and product launches, I have worked on some remarkable projects that have helped shape Taronga’s history and it has been a privilege to share these moments,” Hodgson said.  

Equally, however, Hodgson is enthusiastic about stepping into the director of fundraising, marketing and communications post at Unicef. This will also be the second time she’s worked for the not-for-profit, having originally worked as a direct marketing manager for Unicef over four years based in the UK. CMO understands the role previously existed but has been vacant for some time.

Taronga Zoo is yet to confirm Hodgson’s replacement.

Determining our Humanity

‘Business as unusual’ is a term my organisation has adopted to describe the professional aftermath of COVID-19 and the rest of the tragic events this year. Social distancing, perspex screens at counters and masks in all manner of situations have introduced us to a world we were never familiar with. But, as we keep being reminded, this is the new normal. This is the world we created. Yet we also have the opportunity to create something else.
