Mark Regev (formerly Freiberg) (Hebrew: מרק רגב‎) is an Israeli diplomat and media spokeperson. He is currently the spokesman for the Prime Minister of Israel and an advisor on foreign press and public affairs, a position he has held since his appointment by the former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in 2007.

Regev was born Mark Freiberg in Melbourne, Australia in 1960 to Martin and Freda Freiberg. He graduated from Mount Scopus Memorial College, received his Bachelor's degree in Political Science and History at Melbourne University, and a Master's degree in Political Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, as well as a Master of Science in Management from Boston University.

In his youth Regev was a prominent member of the Socialist-Zionist youth movement, Ichud Habonim and was active in the Melbourne University Jewish Students Society. In 1982 he emigrated to Israel and worked at kibbutz Tel Katzir. In Israel he changed his name from Freiberg to Regev, adopting the Israeli family name of his adoptive kibbutz parents. He is married and has three children.
