Profile: Ian McConnell


Group Business Editor

I have been with The Herald since 1995. Since 2003, I have been business editor, overseeing a section which is focused on Scottish and exclusive content, while covering the big stories from elsewhere in the UK and internationally. The business section includes extensive opinion, insight and analysis. I write two columns each week for our Business Voices page. I cover companies across all sectors, and take a keen interest in key economic issues. In recent years, I have written extensively on Brexit, which remains a key issue for the economy and the business community. Seven-times category winner in the Scottish Press Awards. Winner of various UK-wide awards, including Scoop of the Year in the Workworld Media Awards. Have written occasional travel features for The Herald, on destinations including Japan, Taiwan, and India.
