Chief Brand Officer - Ducks Unlimited
Memphis, TN

Ducks Unlimited seeks to recruit an innovative individual to serve as Chief Brand Officer, based in Memphis Tennessee.

Established in 1937, Ducks Unlimited, Inc. (DU) has conserved more than 14 million acres, thanks to contributions from more than a million supporters across the continent. Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, DU has offices in Mississippi, California, North Dakota, Michigan, and Washington, D.C., with sister organizations in Canada and Mexico. Ducks Unlimited is built on the passion of its volunteers, members, and staff who collectively demonstrate a powerful commitment to the vision of “wetlands sufficient to fill the skies with waterfowl today, tomorrow, and forever.”

Over 80 years, DU’s mission of waterfowl habitat conservation has resulted in its working across the continent to serve the habitats that make possible the abundance of wildlife. Waterfowl, upland birds, and other species of wildlife are not the only beneficiaries of DU’s habitat work. Wetlands also provide vital ecological benefits for people. Wetlands improve the overall health of our environment by recharging and purifying groundwater, moderating floods, and reducing soil erosion. Wetlands are North America’s most productive ecosystems, providing critical habitat to more than 900 wildlife species, clean water for our communities, and invaluable recreational opportunities for all people to enjoy, but just in the last 50 years, our nation has lost more than 17 million acres of wetlands.  

In addition to a robust and dynamic national grassroots membership, Ducks Unlimited has a subsidiary board called Wetlands American Trust (WAT). The goal of WAT is to provide specialized financial and philanthropic support to Ducks Unlimited. It has been that way since WAT was created more than 25 years ago.

DU’s fundraising events are an integral part of its culture and play a large role in positioning DU as a lifestyle brand. Each year, more than 55,000 volunteers host nearly 4,000 fundraising events for DU. These events raise vital dollars for conservation and are a key tool for engaging a majority of DU’s members, volunteers, and major donors. DU has approximately 500 employees across the country and an annual operating budget of more than $220 million. Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, Ducks Unlimited has offices in Mississippi, California, North Dakota, Michigan, and Washington, D.C., with sister organizations in Canada and Mexico.  Last year, DU conserved approximately 275,000 acres of land in the United States.
