Field joins the corporate PR team and will report to Corporate Mandate's managing director Brooke Clarke.
Prior to a short-term contract at Red, Field was a board director at Four Communications where she worked for more than seven years. She worked on corporate reputation and crisis management programmes for a number of high profile organisations such as Grant Thornton International, Barclaycard and the Economic Development Board of Bahrain.
She also helped establish the agency's offices in Bahrain, Abu Dhabi and Dubai alongside establishing the firm's travel PR division.
Clarke said: ‘Mandate has ambitious plans for growth, particularly within our corporate practice, and we expect Lis' financial and economic development experience to be a great complement to the existing strengths of the team.'
Field is the latest in a line of senior appointments at Mandate. Ben Maynard joined Corporate Mandate as a director in September 2009 and also reports to Clarke.
