Michael Cogley is an award-winning journalist who has worked as a technology correspondent with The Daily Telegraph and as a senior editor with Business Insider. 

Alice Chambers is an investigative reporter with a track record of covering corruption and disinformation. 

Jonathan Keane is one of the most respected voices in technology journalism, contributing to media organisations including Forbes, CNBC, the BBC, The Sunday Times, and Sifted.

Now, all three journalists have joined The Currency as full-time staff members. 

Tom Lyons, co-founder and CEO of The Currency, said the appointments highlighted the publication’s commitment to producing top-quality journalism and to continually investing in the product.

“We are delighted to welcome three top-class journalists to the team,” Lyons said, adding that the appointment of Cogley will also see The Currency develop its presence in London.

Based in London since the start of 2020, Cogley has been appointed London Editor and will lead The Currency’s developing presence there. He will cover Britain as a major export destination and as a two-way investment location for Irish companies. 

Given his wealth of experience, he will also contribute to The Currency’s domestic coverage. 

Keane is a seasoned tech reporter with in-depth knowledge of the regulatory challenges associated with new digital developments. He spent his first week with The Currency in Brussels to report on emerging EU AI legislation and business issues arising in the upcoming European elections. 

Chambers is joining The Currency from Noteworthy at The Journal, where she has worked as an investigative reporter. She attended Columbia University as a post-graduate student specialising in investigative journalism and is a former David Jayne Fellow at ABC News in London. 

Chambers will boost The Currency’s scrutiny of interactions between the public and private sectors, transparency, and governance. She will join the team in the coming weeks. 

Thomas Hubert, Editor of The Currency, said the three journalists have 30 years of experience between them, focusing on researching and reporting business stories and public policy. 

“While their versatility allows them to cover multiple areas of interest to readers of The Currency, each has specific areas of expertise that will add to existing coverage,” he said.
