Rob McNeil is to join Conservation International as international news media director, based in Washington DC.
He will be responsible for increasing the organisation's profile in both the UK and international media.
McNeil joined Oxfam in the summer of 2007, where he has been overseeing the team responsible for PR around shops and revenue generation. He was previously senior press officer at WWF UK for four years. Prior to this McNeil was a journalist for eight years, latterly on the Evening Standard's newsdesk.
He will be replaced by online press officer Stuart Fowkes. Fowkes, alongside celebrity coordinator Raakhi Shah, was responsible for the 'Oxjam' shop gigs that were awarded a 'highly commended' in last year's PRWeek awards.
