The author of MT's feature 'So You Think You Need an FD ...' joined the launch team of CFO Europe in 1998 and is now editor-in-chief. She left California in the '80s to write for a Berlin paper, moved to Paris to art direct a children's title, then came in London. But she loves Berlin, 'for so many reasons!'


MT's new diarist has the perfect credentials for the post: ex-chairman of the FSA and former deputy governor of the Bank of England and now director of the London School of Economics. This month, he ruminates on professors of spin, journalistic inexactitude and the retired NYSE boss Dick Grasso.


The executive editor of Autocar has written about cars for 20 years. His career highlights? 'Driving a Ferrari to the Sahara and another to the tip of Argentina.' From this month, Bremner test-drives the meanest of executive machines for MT's On the Road column, starting with the BMW 5 series.


MT takes a dip into the murky world of money laundering with the aid of reformed rogue trader Leeson, who reviews Jeffrey Robinson's The Sink.

Leeson - who brought down Barings Bank - finds a book brimming 'with tales that would frighten anyone who believes in the sanctity of the banking system'.


The photographer for our 'Space to Think' feature finds sanctuary is his loo at home: 'It's the only room where I can get away from the children.' His latest project, 'Baby Fathers', was a cover feature in the Independent on Sunday, and he has just won a gold pencil at New York's One Show ads awards.
