Business editor's new challenge

South Wales Echo political and business editor Phillip Nifield has left the paper after 38 years to set up his own public relations and media consultancy.

Nifield, who took voluntary redundancy, covered a huge range of stories during his career at the Cardiff-based paper, including the miners’ strike, and in recent years had overall responsibility for the coverage of the National Assembly of Wales. He also campaigned over high councillors’ allowances and for pensions justice for former steel workers.

Nifield said: ‘Media Wales is undergoing a huge transformation in the way news is delivered, and I thought it was an appropriate time for me to move on to a new, exciting challenge.”
