Meningitis Trust in comms team hire

The Meningitis Trust has taken on the marcoms head from a law firm as its new comms manager.

Charlotte Smitheman left Withy King Solicitors last month to join the Bristol-based organisation and fill the gap left by Karen Baxter's departure to children's leukaemia charity CLIC Sargent.

Smitheman, who has previously held comms roles at British Airways, AXA Sun Life and Alta Vista, said her first task was to plan for a public awareness campaign for meningitis – an inflammation of the meninges, the lining that surrounds the brain. It will launch in January next year.

'A major part of my brief is to raise the charity's profile as a national and international charity,' she said. 'I will also be working towards the Meningitis Trust's 21st anniversary in 2007.'
