Pensions Age journo wins WTW DB journalism award for 2nd year running

Pensions Age news editor, Jack Gray, was among those to scoop honours at Willis Towers Watson’s (WTW) 2021 Virtual Media Awards, taking home the DB Pensions Journalist of the Year award for the second year in a row.

Naming Gray as the winner, WTW said he had stood out in the way he covered popular stories, such as the USS pension scheme, the DB Funding Code, and the Pension Schemes Bill with “good story telling and an easy style, while never losing focus on the core story”.

The annually-held awards celebrate excellence in business journalism in areas such as reinsurance, human resources and pensions, with the awards programme consisting of seven topic-specific journalism categories and four publication of the year titles all judged by expert panels, which include senior industry figures and leading journalists.

Gray commented: “I am delighted to have won the DB Pensions Journalist of the Year Award in what is a very competitive category with many extremely talented journalists. Congratulations to all the winners and highly commended, and a huge thank you to Willis Towers Watson.

“Congratulations to Willis Towers Watson on another great virtual event - hopefully next year we can all meet in person.”

WTW head of Great Britain, Nicolas Aubert, said “Our judging panels were highly impressed with the outstanding quality of this year’s media awards submissions. The overriding theme this year was, of course, the global pandemic and its impact on all industries, so clear insights and originality were premium qualities that were rewarded by the judges.

“Congratulations to all of our winners, highly commended journalists and publications of the year for providing excellent analysis and debate in today’s challenging environment.”

Pensions Age would like to thank Willis Towers Watson and the judging panel, and offer congratulations to all the other winners and those named highly commended.
