    2024 Woman of Achievement Honoree

    Barbara Leshinsky

    Former Chief Revenue & Development Officer

    The Ad Council


    Barbara began her career in college athletics. Over the course of ten years, she coached tennis and held a variety of administrative positions, culminating in her role as the Director of Women ’s Athletics at Columbia University.

     

    In 1982, she decided to pursue a different professional direction when she joined the development team at Columbia University. After a brief period at Fordham University, she became the Vice President of Development at the YMCA of Greater New York where she established the development office and led a 150-million-dollar capital campaign. She then moved on to become the Associate Dean for Development at New York Law School.

     

    In 2004, Barbara joined the Ad Council where she remained until her retirement in December of 2023. As the Chief Revenue and Development Officer, she has the distinction of having raised an astonishing 350 million dollars during her nineteen-year tenure. Her standout accomplishments include spearheading the single largest public health campaign in the United States’ history, the Ad Council ’s Vaccine Education Initiative, raising 60 million dollars in a matter of months. Click here to read Barbara's full biography.
