Marissa Lynch

I studied journalism in Brisbane, Queensland before taking a job on the sunny Gold Coast in Australia for the daily News Limited paper the Gold Coast Bulletin. As a news reporter I covered everything from business to property to health to lifestyle and even managed to swing rides in both a Spitfire and a Black Hawk helicopter. I did the typical Australian rite of passage by travelling around Europe and moving to the UK for a working holiday. Two years’ later, after stints at the Department of Energy and Climate Change and in Emap launching the World Infrastructure Summit, I’m now firmly engrossed in the world of infrastructure and will be focusing on international major projects for NCE (and staying with the help of my EU passport). Declan and I are neither married, nor related.
