Pensions Age sweeps the board on DB Pensions Journalist of the Year at WTW Media Awards

Pensions Age has swept the board in the defined benefit (DB) Pensions Journalist of the Year category at the Willis Towers Watson Virtual Media Awards 2020.

Pensions Age news editor, Jack Gray, won defined benefit (DB) Pensions Journalist of the Year and editor, Laura Blows, was named as highly commended in the same category.

The awards aim to celebrate excellence in business journalism in the areas of reinsurance; insurance and risk; human resources and employee benefits; pensions; and investments, and are judged by expert panels, including senior industry figures.

Now in their 15th year, the awards were shifted to an online virtual ceremony amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Gray was recognised for his work in the DB space, including breaking news around the emergence of the Pensions Schemes Bill and in-depth discussions around sustainable investments and nuclear energy, with a focus on the core considerations for DB schemes and trustees.

Willis Towers Watson head of Great Britain, Nicolas Aubert, commented: “In today’s challenging times, the need for good journalism has never been greater, so we are pleased to recognise these individuals for their outstanding work.

“These awards, whether they’re held in person or virtually, allow us to celebrate exceptional talent, which was present in so many of the submissions we saw this year. Congratulations to all of our winners and highly commended journalists.”

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.
