Director of State and Federal
The Nature Conservancy Maryland and DC Chapter
Mollie Byron joined the Nature Conservancy, a charitable environmental organization, in 2016 after a series of increasingly more influential positions with former Gov. Martin O’Malley.
Byron’s last job with O’Malley was as his deputy national political director when he ran for president in 2016. She was second-in-command of the national campaign that recruited supporters, volunteers and surrogates across the country.
In 2010, Byron started working with O’Malley as the Western Maryland campaign coordinator. In 2011-2012, she was the capital area coordinator, and from 2012 to 2014, she was deputy director of intergovernmental affairs before being deputy legislative officer in 2015.
At the Nature Conservancy, Byron has been developing its government relations program. “Governor O’Malley always says ‘a dream is a goal without a deadline’ and I live by that motto every day at the Nature Conservancy, where I have developed government relations processes to help us achieve our dreams of clean water and climate resilience,” Byron said
