Chief Operating Officer
Marcia oversees the execution of WWF’s strategy. She leads our government affairs and policy, private sector engagement, development, and marketing and communications efforts along with our critical operating systems—including human resources, finance and IT, which support the work of more than 900 employees in the US and abroad. Marsh joined WWF in 2004 as the senior vice president for operations and led the design and implementation of key business processes. She has since served as the organization’s lead change manager, helping to align people, processes and technology with an ambitious strategy to bring conservation to scale. In addition, Marsh leads the CARE/WWF Alliance, an innovative partnership that is creating new models of addressing poverty alleviation, food security and conservation in one holistic approach.
Prior to joining WWF, Marsh served in a number of leadership roles, including vice president of government transformation at the Partnership for Public Service, practice leader for integrated solutions and international consulting with Watson Wyatt Worldwide, and partner with Price Waterhouse.
