New editor for Euromoney
Simon Brady becomes editor of Euromoney from next month. He succeeds Garry Evans who has worked for the journal for the last 12 years, eight of them as editor, and who has moved to Tokyo to fulfil an early ambition to work in Japan. Evans became a great editor of Euromoney, swinging its editorial into the different mainstreams of international finance with growing dexterity and judgement, setting a pace that impressed professionals in markets across the world. He will be missed.
Brady continues a tradition of editors with strong technical competence, combined with youthful flair. Like Evans, he has a first class honours degree - but in classics, not in Japanese studies. He has been in the company for 10 years, beginning as a casual worker in the mailroom before he began a rapid ascent up the editorial ranks of Euromoney, where he developed an almost arcane interest in derivatives, moving on to become editor of Global Investor, and Corporate Finance, sister publications of Euromoney.
He is the sixth editor of Euromoney in nearly 29 years, but the first one who is a graduate of University College London. For the record, two of the previous editors were Oxford University graduates; two from Trinity College Dublin; and one from Cambridge.
