Matthew Gwyther

Matthew Gwyther is the former editor of Management Today.

During his 16 year spell running the magazine, he won the coveted BSME Business Magazine Editor of the year on a record five occasions. Before that he spent 15 years as a freelancer, writing for the Sunday Times magazine, The Independent, The Telegraph, The Observer, GQ and was a contributing editor to Business magazine. He was PPA Business Feature Writer of the Year in 2001 and spends far too much time worrying about his three kids. Before becoming a journalist he had a brief and inauspicious spell as a civil servant working at the Medical Research Council in its London Secretariat. It nearly drove him crazy.
