Elizabeth Ricca

Co-Director, Member-Owner


As Big Duck’s Co-Director, Liz ensures that Big Duck is a healthy, thriving company—that we’re creating a great work environment, are financially stable, producing work that successfully meets or exceeds client’s needs, and that diversity, inclusion, equity, and antiracism are centered in all we do. She directs our human resources, financial operations, policy compliance, and nurtures our company culture.

Liz joined Big Duck in 2007 and has since worked with dozens of nonprofits to establish clear frameworks for their brands, craft communications strategies that speak to varied audiences, and navigate the murky waters of change. She is particularly passionate about reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and criminal justice reform.

A graduate of Yale University, Liz joined Big Duck as a coordinator on our account management team. Over the years, Liz has had a number of roles within Big Duck, including leading the strategy and account management teams and managing operations. She became a Partner in 2019 and Co-Director once the company transitioned to a worker-owned cooperative in 2021. Liz’s big-picture thinking coupled with her knack for getting things done has become invaluable to both Big Duck’s clients and our team. Liz is also the Treasurer of Big Duck’s board of directors.
