Professional Pensions

Jonathan is editor of Professional Pensions and Workplace Savings & Benefits (WSB). He started work as a journalist on a capital markets magazine called Central European in 2000 before joining an internet start-up called, a pensions news service.

Jonathan joined Professional Pensions in July 2001 and has been there, barring a nine-month sabbatical in 2004, ever since. He launched PP Online in 2006, became deputy editor of Professional Pensions in 2008, editor in 2009, launched WSB in 2012 and became editor-in-chief of both brands in 2014.

Jonathan has won several awards throughout his career - most recently the Society of Pension Professionals' Journalist of the Year Award 2019 - and is holder of the Pension Management Institute's Retirement Provision Certificate.

Outside of pensions, Jonathan enjoys spending time with his son, helping to run a Scout troop, and trying (unsuccessfully so far) to improve his very sluggish 5km running time.
