Christina DeMercado joined us five years ago and in that time helped to build the programme of communications, events and other alumni activities that we are proud to offer alumni today. Many of you would have been in touch with Christina over the years and will no doubt be aware of her warmth and professionalism.
In 2009, Christina won a promotion and became our Events Executive allowing us to broaden our events programme for alumni based in the UK and overseas. Last year we were able to host our highest number of international events with new receptions held in China, Russia and India. Just last month, Christina worked with Professor Tim Lang to organise City’s first ever Food Skills Symposium. The all-day event was fully subscribed and a huge success thanks to Christina’s hard work and commitment.
In addition to working for City, Christina also juggled her time to complete a Masters in Human Rights and International Politics here and therefore became an alumna in her own right. We are sure Christina will continue to play her part in City’s future as an active member of the Alumni Network and in the meantime, she will be dearly missed by her colleagues who value her expertise and thoughtful advice.
