Fundraising Institute Australia appoints new CEO
Australia’s largest representative fundraising body has appointed Katherine Raskob as their new CEO
Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer to see through the representative body’s next stage of growth.
The peak body appointed Katherine Raskob to replace outgoing CEO Rob Edwards as he steps down after seven years at the head of FIA. Raskob brings with her 20 years of experience from roles in both the corporate and not-for-profit sector.
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 was most recently working as a Director in Communications and Customer Experience at the Australian Alliance for Data Leadership, incorporating ADMA, the Association for Data-driven Marketing and Advertising.
She has experience in managing key areas of growth, including member engagement and marketing, communications, content and technology platforms and solutions that drove more than half of the ADMA’s revenue.
Raskob has also been actively part of not-for-profit boards for several organisations and is currently a member of the Board of Directors of Girl Guides Australia.
“I’m so excited to be joining FIA which represents a $12.5 billion dollar sector that is strongly supported by Australians,” Raskob said.
“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.”
