Hugo Gurdon

Editor in chief

Hugo Gurdon joined The Hill as editor in chief in January 2003.

His career in journalism began after university in 1981. In 1987, having worked in local and trade newspapers for six years, Gurdon joined The Daily Telegraph, Britain's market-leading daily broadsheet newspaper. In 13 years there, he worked in almost every area of the paper - he was at various times a financial reporter; a Wall Street correspondent; the financial-news editor; Southeast Asia correspondent, based in Hong Kong; the Tokyo-based Far East bureau chief; industry editor in London; and head of the Washington bureau. He was also member of the Telegraph's editorial board for two years and a frequent op-ed and features writer.

In 1999, Gurdon was recruited by the National Post, a groundbreaking new daily paper in Canada that quickly attracted admirers and imitators throughout the English-speaking world.

After three years in Toronto, Gurdon moved back to Washington with his family and joined The Hill to undertake a rapid expansion of its scope and publication schedule. Since 2003, The Hill has been transformed from a weekly into a daily paper, with an issue coming out each morning of the congressional workweek.
