Resurgence brings in blue-chip media and marketing talent to boost its climate impact offering.
Resurgence has hired respected communications professional, Dilupa Nanayakkara, to ensure that its brand and its award-winning urban climate resilience solutions are more visible in the run up to the international climate negotiation – COP26 – in Glasgow, 2021.
Dilupa will be responsible for raising the profile of Resurgence at a pivotal time for the scale-up of its services in inclusive weather, climate and early warning support to cities and communities
She will also be responsible for extending the reach of Resurgence across its key networks and
media channels for clients and partners.
Dilupa brings in over a decade’s experience as a communications strategist at The Times and News International, and as Head of Strategy for Bauer Media’s commercial radio portfolio, consumer magazines and music TV channels.
Mark Harvey, CEO at Resurgence, said: “As high impact weather events continue to punctuate the news cycle, the climate resilience and adaptation sector urgently needs professional industry expertise to communicate its relevance and offering to investors, partners and stakeholders. That is why I am so delighted to welcome Dilupa to Resurgence. Her cross-media experience and work with some of the world’s leading media and consumer brands such as Unilever will help Resurgence communicate its strong value proposition in saving property, enhancing livelihoods and saving lives across the world’s most dynamic and climate-exposed cities.”
Dilupa will immediately build on the ground breaking work that Resurgence has started with a
range of UK and global innovation partners who are rallying around the Risk-informed Early Action
Partnership (REAP) and its goal to make 1 billion people safer from climate disasters by 2025.
