Anthony Jones, Ducks Unlimited

My Career with Ducks Unlimited

From 2002 to 2021, I had the absolute privilege of leading the Ducks Unlimited Digital Media & Marketing Team in support of our conservation mission. Our team was responsible for crafting the overall digital marketing and fundraising strategy, managing the organizational website, social media, email marketing and mobile app development. We utilized all of these tools and channels in order to strengthen and extend the reach of the DU brand, position the organization as the authority for waterfowl hunting and wetland conservation resources and generate revenue through online giving, memberships and advertising.

I recently made the decision to make a career change and form my own consulting company. Learn more about that here.

In addition to my team, I was also surrounded by outstanding partners across the organization, including staff in communications, fundraising, conservation and IT. We were also proud to work with thousands of dedicated volunteers across the country. These volunteers are the backbone of our organization and are some of the best people you’ll ever meet.
