Former National Public Radio CMO Meg Galloway Goldthwaite is joining The Nature Conservancy as chief marketing and communications officer, effective Nov. 16.

Goldthwaite was most recently a managing partner at visual marketing studio Cove Creative. At NPR, she worked to reach new audiences as part of its diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts and spearheaded the initiative to reposition the organization as an innovative, purpose-driven brand.

Her previous positions include chief marketing officer at Conservation International; senior director, strategy and innovation at Women for Women International; and vice president, marketing and communications for the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.

Goldthwaite started her career with Verizon, Inc. (formerly MCI, Inc.), where she led marketing and sales strategy for MCI’s $3.5 billion residential and small business unit.

At The Nature Conservancy, she will lead the communications team as it works to raise the profile of TNC’s efforts, as well as awareness of the crucial issues facing the planet.

“She has the skills, the passion, and the creativity needed to connect with people around the world. We look forward to what she will bring to our efforts to increase awareness about TNC’s work and brand, reach new and existing audiences in creative ways, and ultimately take our organization to the next level,” said TNC chief executive officer Jennifer Morris.
