Will Mace began his journey in business journalism at The Independent under NBR's current co-editor Fiona Rotherham more than a decade ago. When the IFR closed he stayed as part of the Fairfax Business Bureau before eventually seeking new adventures in London.
Mace spent six years at Acuris Global (formerly Mergermarket) where he covered listed M&As, special situations, and shareholder activism campaigns across Europe. In 2016 he was tasked with launching an entirely new Acuris service called Activistmonitor, and became an authority on the subject of activism as it grew in the region.
Over his last two years in London, Will juggled editorship and reporting across activism, M&A, ECM, and regulatory/competition review coverage.
He enjoys live music, sailing, skiing, and critiquing rugby from the safety of the sidelines.
