Stockhead is written by Australia’s only team of full-time business reporters and contributors dedicated to covering emerging listed companies.

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.
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.
