Leo Visconti joins Carers Trust as new Executive Director of Income Generation and Marketing

Carers Trust is delighted to announce that Leo Visconti has been appointed as its new Executive Director of Income Generation and Marketing.

Leo joins Carers Trust on 14 May. He has more than 20 years of marketing and fundraising experience, working across celebrity, major donor, legacy, corporate and individual giving. During that time he has developed award-winning multi-year partnerships and created innovative campaigns for a string of organisations.

Most recently, Leo has been Director of External Relations at the charity UK Youth where he transformed the charity’s fundraising, marketing and communications. During his tenure, he launched a £6.4m appeal and development board, created a series of high-profile campaigns and developed its brand partnerships.

Leo began his career as Corporate Fundraising Manager for Leonard Cheshire. Since then his career has progressed through appointments at some of the UK’s best known charities including Age UK, Mencap, the RNIB, St Mungo’s and Queen Elizabeth's Foundation for Disabled People.

He is currently a trustee for the charity Hourglass, which campaigns against the abuse of older people, and is the founder of the London Charity Softball League.

Looking forward to his new role, Leo said:

“I have lived experience of what it is like being a young carer. My brother and I sacrificed most of our childhood to ensure that we could care for our mother, that the household was ok. I know what it is to be an unpaid carer and will be able to speak passionately in different forums. I am also attracted to the role and I feel that I am joining at the right time – this charity is ready for some serious growth, and I am excited to be joining and being a part of that journey.”
