Peter Marsh's Biography

Peter Marsh was a journalist at the Financial Times from 1983-2013, where his most recent job was manufacturing editor, reporting on developments in industries relating to manufacturing. During his time at the FT, he also covered technology, economics and the chemicals industry.

In 1973 Peter joined the Luton Evening Post. From 1977, he worked for six years as a reporter and editor at New Scientist, the international science publication, which he left to join the Financial Times.
