Chamber Team

Christina Hippisley - General Manager

 

After reading History at Trinity College, Cambridge, Christina started her career in advertising and media relations, working first in London and then in Lisbon, before moving into magazine publishing in 1988. Having built a successful book and contract magazine publishing business in Portugal, with offices in Lisbon and the Algarve, in 1996 she sold the business to the London-based Hemming Group and returned to London. She then continued her career in magazine and book publishing, working in senior roles at Archant Specialist Media, Virgin Books, and Bath-based publishers Merricks Media.

Christina joined the Chamber Council in 2006 and became the Chamber’s General Manager in February 2009.


 

Alice Fonseca - Office and Events Manager (currently on maternity leave)

After graduating in Tourism Management from the Instituto Politécnico de Leiria in 2005, Alice moved to London where she worked as a Senior Business Travel Consultant for a leading travel agency specialising in the Lusophone market

In 2009, alongside her existing job, she undertook a part time M.A in Conference and Events Management at London’s Westminster University in order to pursue a new career in event management.

Alice joined the Portuguese Chamber in February 2012. She wants to learn more about international trade relations, and is keen to help organise events that enable members to expand their businesses.


 

Matilde Melo - Office and Events Manager

Matilde Melo graduated in Communication Design from Lisbon’s Academia das Belas Artes in 2015. After her degree she applied to AICEP’s acclaimed INOVcontacto internship programme. As a result, she moved to London to intern at the leading online retailer Butterfly Twists, where she then stayed working as an e-commerce and digital marketing assistant for nearly a year. During this period, she improved her skills in multi-tasking, customer service and digital marketing, and with her great design skills we anticipate she will certainly have ideas to improve the Chamber's marketing and communications. We are delighted to welcome Matilde to the Chamber team!
