A journalist ever since news was printed on paper, Peter made the switch to digital in 2007, joining a fledgling news.com.au. Since then, he has specialised mainly in tech, news and business. He came to Stockhead in 2019 after a five-year stint at Business Insider Australia. In all his spare time, he manages an apple orchard in Tasmania, mainly for the cider benefits.

Covering ASX small caps, local and global markets, geopolitics and international trade, his work has appeared in the AFR, SMH, Daily Telegraph, The Australian, Le Monde Diplomatique and, naturally, The People’s Daily.

Gregor Stronach
Production Editor

Gregor has been a journalist since the age of 11, most of that time spent writing about cars, motorcycles, parenting and serial killers (but not all at once). He’s a founding contributor to The Chaser, written speeches for federal senators and spent a decade lecturing post graduate Media and Comms at the University of Sydney. He’d also like to thank whoever recently broke into his crypto account for reminding him he has a crypto account.

 

Josh Chiat
Senior Resources Reporter

With a background in history and communications studies, Josh spent four years as a reporter at the Kalgoorlie Miner and arrives at Stockhead after several years working across newspapers, sport and community engagement. Reporting from Australia’s unofficial mining capital, he wrote its weekly Mine Talk feature, and was a regular contributor to the West Australian’s business section. A passionate soccer player and coach, he will never consider selling his West Ham United stock.

 

Bevis Yeo

Bevis has more than a decade of experience covering energy and resources news in Australia with a particular focus on oil and gas. He is a former editor of Energy News Bulletin and is based in our Perth Office.

 

Eddy Sunarto

He’s always been an enthusiastic follower of Australian equities, even when living overseas. Now back in Australia, he joins Stockhead keen on applying his market knowledge to cover breaking news on multiple ASX sectors.

 

Emma Davies
Journalist

Emma has been writing about resources for the past five years – give or take a year when she had a short stint as the editor of a national education paper. In her spare time, she writes about women in sport with work published in Foxtel Magazine and the Women’s Game.

 

Rob Badman
Journalist
[email protected]
Pizza delivery boy, cinema usher, journalist, sub editor, deputy chief sub, chief sub, digital producer, Sydney Morning Herald page editor, copywriter and a journalist again. That’s one way to sum up UK-based Australian Rob’s career. Maybe he’ll come full circle and get into the pizza biz once more. Until then, he’s writing about crypto and holding too many s**tcoins.

 

Jessica Cummins
Journalist
[email protected]
Jess started her career at the Kalgoorlie Miner back in 2017, where she reported on stories within the arts and education news rounds before ending up at Proactive as a financial journalist. Working out of Stockhead’s Perth office, Jess has a double degree in journalism and PR as well as a Masters of Marketing from Curtin University.

 

Nadine McGrath
Journalist
[email protected]
Nadine is a Brisbane-based journalist with a keen interest in financial markets and the economy. Her media career kicked off as a rural reporter with WIN Television progressing to News Ltd and Australian Associated Press. She’s also worked on the other side in public relations. Nadine has a keen interest in seeking out and telling stories from ASX-listed small and midcaps across a range of sectors. In her spare time (!) she’s mostly bossing her three teenagers around and if that all becomes too much she’ll head out for a run or hit the yoga mat.
