50 Making a Difference Profile: Marnie K. Ducato, Rex Public Relations


Record, Journal, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Marnie Ducato's love for the community led to a decade of nonprofit work before joining Rex Public Relations as the vice president of communications. Since she has been with Rex, she has helped work on several community projects such as river development, economic development and work with Tulsa's Young Professionals. She also specializes in media relations for all clients.

Prior to joining the Tulsa communications firm last year, Ducato served as the director of marketing and public relations for Tulsa Zoo Friends. During her four years at the Tulsa Zoo, the zoo won awards for best marketing campaign for the Penguins on Parade, Wings Gone Wild and Koalas. Most recently, she led the campaign for winning America's Favorite Zoo. In addition, Tulsa Zoo was named one of the top 15 zoos in the country by Child Magazine and has had three national television spots highlighting accomplishments at the zoo.

Since obtaining her bachelor's degree in interpersonal and public communication from Oklahoma Baptist University, her work since college has included work for several nonprofit organizations. She has worked for the YMCA of the Rockies in Winter Park, Colo., and for three Big Brothers and Sisters agencies.
