The former editor of The Sunday Times’ Insight team, Stephen Grey, has joined Reuters as a special correspondent in its global enterprise team.
Based in London, Grey will report to enterprise editor (EMEA) Simon Robinson and will have a broad remit covering the UK, Europe and the Middle East to produce ‘high impact and investigative special reports for Reuters”.
Grey is best known for his exclusive revelations about the CIA’s ‘extraordinary-rendition’ program and corruption in the European Union, as well as war reporting from Iraq and Afghanistan.
He began his career as a freelance before joining the Daily Express in 1993. He joined The Sunday Times in 1996 and from 2001 to 2003 was The Sunday Times’ Insight editor, running the paper’s investigation team during the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks.
He returned to freelancing in 2003 and continued to report for The Sunday Times in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as writing for The New York Times, The Guardian and The Times.
He also worked as a consultant for ABC News and 60 Minutes and was a correspondent for the BBC, Channel 4’s Dispatches and PBS Frontline.
Grey is author of Ghost Plane (2007), an account of the CIA rendition program, and Operation Snakebite (2009) on the war in Helmand.
