FT Brussels bureau chief Peter Spiegel (@SpiegelPeter) is one of the top ten most followed journalists by world leaders, according to the latest Twiplomacy analysis by global PR firm Burson-Marsteller.
Spiegel leads the FT’s coverage of the European Union’s foreign and economic policies and political leaders. In 2012 and 2013, Spiegel and his team won consecutive awards for their coverage of the eurozone debt crisis at the Society of American Business Writers and Editors.
His “How the Euro Was Saved” series is considered the definitive account of the events of 2011 and 2012 that forever changed Europe. It was one of the best read series on FT.com of 2014 and shortlisted for a British Journalism Award.
