Media Defence would like to congratulate our CEO, Lucy Freeman, on her upcoming maternity leave, beginning February 2020. While she is away, Alinda Vermeer, our Head of Legal Cluster, will be stepping up to the role of interim CEO. Our organisation has a busy year ahead, with lots of important announcements coming up. We welcome Alinda to her new role and look forward to her leadership during what will be a very exciting period for Media Defence.

Robert Jobbins, Chair of Media Defence, said: "After a highly successful year, MLDI starts 2020 with some exciting news: our Chief Executive, Lucy Freeman, is starting maternity leave next week, and the Head of our legal team, Alinda Vermeer, will take on the challenge of acting as CEO while Lucy is away. They have been working together closely for the past few months, and I am confident that Alinda will lead us skilfully through the next phase of our strategic development as well as building on the successes we have achieved over the past few years. All the trustees and staff join me in wishing Lucy well."
