Multimedia Editor


Former Lloyd’s List sustainability editor Declan re-joined us in August 2023 as multimedia editor, overseeing our daily news and other digital output. Between his Lloyd’s List tours of duty, Declan covered distressed debt as a reporter with Reorg, an industry-leading financial newswire. He has also written for legal trade press and, before that, newspapers in his native Western Australia. When not checking the news, Declan plays guitar in London's blues music scene and buys more books than will ever have time to read.
