Mirella von Lindenfels is joining Amnesty in mid-September after a

three-year stint at Greenpeace. She will be replaced by Blake

Lee-Harwood, who joins as communications director. Lee-Harwood

previously worked for the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.



Von Lindenfels will report to Vicent del Buono, the new deputy secretary

general of Amnesty, and to the international executive committee. The

role entails responsibility for the quality and consistency of Amnesty

communications worldwide and ensuring a high level of international

press coverage.



Von Lindenfels will work in conjunction with PR agency Bates-Dorland,

which is employed on an ad hoc, pro bono basis.
