Tennessee Wildlife Federation, one of the largest and oldest nonprofits dedicated to conserving the state’s wildlife and natural resources, welcomes its new Director of Communications, Colleen Dolan.
Dolan will lead the marketing communications department. In her role, she is responsible for marketing and promoting the mission, programs, and initiatives of Tennessee Wildlife Federation. She will collaborate with development, policy, and programs teams to help drive fundraising and awareness of policy and conservation work as well as drive participation in Tennessee Wildlife Federation’s programs.
“We are pleased to have Colleen join our team. Her diverse background, working on large public relations campaigns and for some of the country’s biggest brands will be a great benefit to our work at the Federation,” said Kendall McCarter, chief development officer of the Federation.
Bringing more than 10 years of experience, Dolan has demonstrated a track record of brand building, corporate communications, and reputation management. Her strategic leadership will play an important role in promoting Tennessee CLEAN, which would create a Tennessee CLEAN Commission to bring new ideas and proven solutions to the problem of litter as well as looking for ways to expand the state’s existing effective programs that are inadequately resourced.
The outdoors have always been a passion of mine. I’m honored to join this team and look forward to supporting the Federation’s critical work conserving our natural resources.
