The Toledo Zoo hired Mary Fedderke, a Toledo-area native, as its director of development.
Ms. Fedderke, who is being paid $90,000 annually, started her new job last month. She is responsible for coordinating memberships, corporate sponsorships, and fund-raising events and programs.
For the past 12 years, Ms. Fedderke worked as a district sales manager for Playtex Products, Inc.
She said she wanted to work for the zoo because her “deep community roots” made her interested in serving area residents.
