Elizabeth Ricca

Partner, Chief Operating Officer


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. Within a short period of time, she switched over to Big Duck’s strategy team, and in 2013, Liz became Big Duck’s Director of Strategy, overseeing five other strategists and working directly with clients. 

Today, as Big Duck’s Chief Operating Officer, Liz leads our account management team and is responsible for our operations, as well as leading significant change initiatives for our company. Liz’s big-picture thinking coupled with her knack for getting things done have become invaluable to both Big Duck’s clients and our team.
