Congratulations are due to Hugh Wheelan, managing editor of Responsible-Investor.com and an NSFM participant, who has won the inaugural 2010 Responsible Investment Journalism Award presented by PIRC (Pension Investment Research Consultants), the UK voting research company and Robbins Geller Rudman & Dowd, the US law firm. The award, which is to become an annual event, was presented on July 14th at The Globe Theatre in London.
A separate 2010 Corporate Governance Journalism Award was won by Kate Burgess of the Financial Times. The organizers said the awards were intended to recognise the important contribution that journalists make in the areas of responsible investment and corporate governance, and to encourage quality journalism.
