Livia Esterhazy joined WWF-New Zealand in May 2017 as Chief Executive Officer. Coming from a corporate background, Livia reached a point where she wanted to apply her commercial expertise to make a positive contribution to the wider social good. She is hugely passionate about sustainability, environmental matters and creating real impact. Prior to WWF, Livia was Managing Director of Clemenger BBDO where she successfully led the modernisation of the Wellington-based business. Livia has also worked with Assignment Group and Saatchi & Saatchi. Livia sees her role at WWF-New Zealand as an exciting opportunity to raise the profile of WWF and their work here in New Zealand, and to personally make a contribution to WWF's objective of building a future where people live in harmony with nature. In addition to her leadership role with WWF-New Zealand, Livia also chairs the WWF Asia Pacific Growth Strategy (APGS).
