EDGEFIELD, S.C. — In an effort to align management team roles with the National Wild Turkey Federation’s programs and strategic plan, CEO Becky Humphries announced new roles for Dave Mahlke and Matt Fenoff, two current members of its executive team.
Effective July 30, Mahlke assumes the role of chief operating officer, and Fenoff becomes the organization’s chief fundraising officer.
“Dave and Matt are valued members of the executive team and have been instrumental in many organizational successes over the past year, such as our record-breaking 2018 convention, growth in event-based membership and increased major-donor fundraising,” Humphries said. “Their new roles will streamline oversight of these focal points helping to best serve our partners, volunteers and members and continue to save the habitat and the hunt.”
In his new role, Mahlke will assist with board support; oversee the development and implementation of recruitment, retention and reactivation programming provided through a volunteer workgroup; and continue to lead the corporate relations and supply chain teams, oversee national NWTF events and manage the NWTF facility and vehicle fleet.
Fenoff will continue his role as head of major-donor fundraising and take on duties of managing event-based membership, field operations and its headquarters-based support team. This move will bring all fundraising under one department.
About the National Wild Turkey Federation
When the National Wild Turkey Federation was founded in 1973, there were about 1.3 million wild turkeys in North America. After decades of work, that number hit a historic high of almost 7 million turkeys. To succeed, the NWTF stood behind science-based conservation and hunters’ rights. The NWTF Save the Habitat. Save the Hunt. initiative is a charge that mobilizes science, fundraising and devoted volunteers to raise $1.2 billion to conserve and enhance more than 4 million acres of essential wildlife habitat, recruit at least 1.5 million hunters and open access to 500,000 acres for hunting.
