A regional financial journalist has won a prestigious award for economic journalism.
The awards are run by the Wincott Foundation, which was set up in 1969 in memory of Investors Chronicle editor and Financial Times columnist Harold Wincott.
The judging panel was chaired by former CBI director-general and editor of the Financial Times Sir Richard Lambert, who also chairs the Wincott Foundation.
Sion’s submission included two exclusive stories on the location of HMRC’s new headquarters in Wales, as well as the proposed three million sq ft Central Quay regeneration scheme in the centre of Cardiff.
The judging panel said: “The judges particularly liked Sion’s coverage of the mooted Cardiff Capital Region Metro, where he supplied news and information not available elsewhere and raised questions around the thinking of the project.
“Like other entries Sion is on top of the many development issues arising on his patch and leads a team which provides information, insight and assessment upon which thriving regional economies depend.”
