Phillip Crawley, Retired Publisher Globe and Mail, ‘Changing Times in the Media Business: Winners and Losers’, March 26, 2024

A newspaper veteran from Northumberland in England’s northeast, Phillip Crawley worked at The Times Supplements and the Daily Telegraph in London, the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong and the New Zealand Herald before arriving in Canada in 1998. After a nearly six-decade career in journalism, including 25 years as CEO and publisher of The Globe and Mail, Crawley retired in Aug 2023 leaving the newspaper in a place where reporters and editors feel empowered to “enable intelligent discussion” and hold government to account.
