Press Release: C40 Appoints New Director of Global Communications

(LONDON, UK) – July 24, 2014 - The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group (C40), has appointed Marie Scott Poulsen, the City of Copenhagen’s former Head of Communications, to lead its communications efforts. Marie will build on the work of Mike Marinello, who returns full-time to Bloomberg LP as Global Head of Communications for Innovation and Technology.

C40 Executive Director, Mark Watts, said: "We are very grateful to Mike for his fantastic contribution to C40. Marie Scott Poulsen has all the skills we are looking for to carry on where he leaves off. Copenhagen is internationally acknowledged for its ambitious climate solutions as well as for its creative methods of communicating its action.  A candidate with a resume including communication of state-of-the-art city climate solutions, as well as managing media at major international climate events like the COP 15 Mayors Summit is the perfect match to C40, as we seek to raise the profile of mayors’ efforts to cut emissions and improve the climate resilience of cities."
