Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) has appointed Katherine Raskob as chief executive officer to drive its next phase of growth.
Raskob brings 20 years’ experience from roles in both the corporate and not-for-profit sectors.
Most recently Raskob was at the Australian Alliance for Data Leadership, incorporating ADMA, the Association for Data-driven Marketing & Advertising.
Here she has been director of communications and customer experience, responsible for key areas of growth including member engagement and marketing, communications, content and technology platforms and solutions that drive more than half of the Association’s revenue.
Raskob has also been active as a board member for several not-for-profit organisations and is currently a member of the Board of Directors of Girl Guides Australia.
FIA chair James Garland said, “We are thrilled to welcome Katherine to FIA.
“Her knowledge of member organisations and her experience across commercial and not-for-profit environments in senior leadership and marketing and communications roles will be invaluable to FIA as we embark on our next phase of growth.”
Raskob added, “I’m so excited to be joining FIA which represents a $12.5 billion dollar sector that is strongly supported by Australians.
“FIA is well positioned for future growth as it seeks to expand its representation to include both individual fundraisers as well as charities and non-profit organisations and I’m looking forward to leading this growth into the future.”
Raskob replaces outgoing CEO Rob Edwards, who steps down after seven years at the helm of FIA.
She begins her new role on Monday, 2 July 2018.
