Chief Executive of international health charity Merlin
Carolyn became Chief Executive of Merlin in 2005, just days after the Asian tsunami prompted Merlin’s largest ever emergency response. Since then she has built Merlin’s longer-term programmes and policy work, as well as overseeing many other emergency responses. Carolyn previously worked as a Director at the UK Department for International Development and as Director of Programmes at Save the Children. She has lived and worked in countries affected by conflict and managed a variety of large international programmes.
