Lancaster University’s alumni magazine Steps profiled alumnus Jim Edwards, who is editor of Business Insider UK.
The magazine wrote, “After graduation he had jobs driving a fork lift truck in a cardboard box factory and at the Sugar House before following his then girlfriend to the USA, where he started as Assistant City Editor for the Herald & News in Northern New Jersey. Since then he has worked for a number of publications including Brill’s Content, Adweek and Slate, picking up the Neal Award on the way. He was also awarded a prestigious Knight-Bagehot Fellowship at Columbia University in recognition of his achievements.
“He joined Business Insider in 2011 as Senior Editor, based in New York, and was Deputy Editor when he was asked to move to the UK to set up a new operation in 2014. Business Insider pioneered digital business news coverage in real-time. The site’s target audience is the next generation of business leaders.
