Simon Mortlock is the Asia Pacific editor of eFinancialCareers and writes news and advice content exclusively for our Singapore and Hong Kong websites. He joined eFC in 2008 and has since been based in both our Singapore and London offices.
Simon grew up in New Zealand and started his journalism career covering court news for two newspapers in his hometown, Auckland. After relocating to the UK, Simon worked as a reporter in the London office of leading American legal website Law.com. He later moved to the publishing arm of City & Financial, where he developed and commissioned a range of new financial and legal titles.
He has two undergraduate degrees from the University of Auckland, in Law and History, as well as a postgrad diploma in Journalism. He decided not to become a lawyer because of the much better money on offer in journalism. When not writing about and travelling around Asia, Simon can be found mostly watching cricket.
