Molly 170squareAvalon Consulting Group is thrilled to announce that Molly Barker has joined the agency as an Account Director.

A highly skilled direct marketer and fundraiser, Ms. Barker brings a wealth of political fundraising experience to Avalon, most recently as Director of Marketing for Hillary for America, where she and her team raised $90 million through direct mail and telemarketing and grew the donor list to over 1 million. She placed a premium on fully engaging donors at all levels and developed a net-profitable acquisition program.

Prior to her tenure with the Clinton campaign, Ms. Barker served as Deputy Director of Marketing at the Democratic National Committee, as well as a number of other fundraising positions from 2008 to 2015, and on Capitol Hill. “Molly is well known in the world of political fundraising because she works hard and gets results,” said Avalon President Allison Porter. “She’s a perfect fit with our agency—a consummate professional deeply experienced in all facets of nonprofit fundraising and marketing, who will thrive in the fast-paced, collaborative environment Avalon is known for.”

Since 1997, Avalon has helped its clients raise millions of dollars to achieve their visions for a better world—while building relationships with people who share their passion and support their vital causes. “Molly brings an impressive level of knowledge and professionalism to her position at Avalon,” said Porter. “She’s excited to make the client-to-consultant transition, and we are so fortunate to add her to our team, as we help our clients navigate the potentially choppy waters ahead! Please join me in warmly welcoming Molly to Avalon.”
