LINCOLN, MA.—Victoria Jones has been named Mass Audubon’s Chief Development Officer.
Victoria, former President of Development Guild DDI, a national nonprofit management consulting firm based in Boston and New York City, brings to Mass Audubon more than 30 years of experience as a respected development executive and fundraising leader.
“We are absolutely thrilled that Victoria has joined our Executive Leadership Team at this very exciting time at Mass Audubon,” said David O’Neill, President of Mass Audubon. “Her tremendous management skills, her ambitious and strategic approach to fundraising, and her ability to build strong teams, are unique in the field and exactly what we need to fuel the implementation of our ambitious plans.”
Prior to her 20-year tenure with Development Guild DDI, where she earlier served as Executive Vice President and Senior Consultant, Victoria held leadership and management positions with the Dimock Community Health Center, Emmanuel College, and Boston Children’s Hospital.
Partnering with clients in Boston’s human services and health sectors and taking significant time to refresh in nature, have helped inform Victoria’s life, professionally and personally, and inspired her career-long commitment to social justice and the environment.
Victoria enjoys hiking, skiing, and “anything on the water.” She is the mother of four grown daughters.
