Jonathan Stapleton
Editor
Professional Pensions

Jonathan is editor of Professional Pensions and Workplace Savings & Benefits (WSB).

He started work as a journalist on a capital markets magazine called Central European in 2000 before joining an internet start-up called ii-Q.com, a pensions news service.

Jonathan joined Professional Pensions in July 2001 and has been there, barring a nine month sabbatical in 2004, ever since. He launched PP Online in 2006, became deputy editor of Professional Pensions in 2008, editor in 2009, launched WSB in 2012 and became editor-in-chief of both brands in 2014.

Jonathan has won a number of awards throughout his career - most recently the Society of Pension Professionals' Journalist of the Year Award 2019 - and is holder of the Pension Management Institute's Retirement Provision Certificate.

Outside of pensions, Jonathan enjoys spending time with his son, helping to run a Scout troop and trying (unsuccessfully so far) to improve his very sluggish 5km running time
