Financial Times Assistant Editor and Columnist Michael Skapinker was named best Business Commentator at the 2012 Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards. Now in its fourth year, the awards recognise the UK’s finest commentary in print and online.

Julia Hobsbawm, chair and CEO of Editorial Intelligence, commented “Business Commentator of the Year is one of the most coveted and hardest to choose because there is so much of it. The judges are looking always for distinction, flair, individuality and covering the topics at hand in forensic detail.”

The Financial Times retains the Business Commentator award from 2011 when it was won by John Gapper, Chief Business Commentator for the Financial Times.

The winners were announced during a breakfast ceremony presented by management consultant and author Peter York at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London, with guests representing the greatest in British journalism, politics, business and academia.
