Margot re-joined the Avalon team in the fall of 2011 after a few years at home with her two young children. Now that they are in school, she is back on board as an Account Director with nearly 20 years of direct marketing experience on both the client and agency sides.
In her previous tenure at Avalon, Margot managed multi-channel direct marketing fundraising campaigns for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the League of Women Voters. She also worked as an Account Executive at the marketing agency then known as Malchow, Adams & Hussey, where she orchestrated tremendously successful fundraising campaigns for nonprofits and coordinated the new business team.
Margot’s work on the client side, for NARAL Pro-Choice America and the National Parks Conservation Association, gives her the unique perspective of the daily challenges that nonprofits experience in terms of getting their message out, fundraising, and membership development. In addition, she has chaired the Board of Directors’ fundraising committee for the Children’s Cause for Cancer Advocacy, and is currently on the Board of Camp Mak-A-Dream – a camp in Montana for children with cancer – serving on its fundraising committee. We welcome Margot back to Avalon, where her multi-channel direct marketing expertise and deep knowledge of her clients’ work make her an invaluable member of our team.
When not at the office, Margot enjoys being involved at her children’s school, spending time with her husband and kids, and finding a rare quiet moment to read.
