Carbone joins Audubon from the American Civil Liberties Union.
NEW YORK (September 24, 2019) – Today, the National Audubon Society announced the appointment of Marco Carbone as Chief Technology Officer. Most recently, Carbone led the digital product and engineering technology transformation at the ACLU.
“Audubon is local everywhere and our vast network of 1.4 million members and 450 chapters have incredible influence to help protect birds and the places they need,” said Stephen Meyer, Audubon’s Chief Operations Officer. “Given the immense conservation challenges we’re facing we need bigger and better tools so that our impact can continue to grow. Marco has transformed and scaled technology to handle rapid growth of membership, to enable expansions of grassroots advocacy programs, and to meet the dynamic needs of ambitious nonprofits.”
While at ACLU, Carbone established the Product & Technology team, growing from three staff members to over twenty engineers, designers, and product managers to support the fundraising, advocacy, communications, and programmatic goals of the organization. Prior to that, Carbone consulted as technical lead and software developer for a range of clients including Teach for America, GLAAD, and the United States Department of State.
