Politico’s New Finance Team Member is a Real Catch!
So, it looks like Politico has managed to snag Gregorio Sorgi for their finance team! I mean, who wouldn’t want a reporter covering the European Union economy on their side? This guy sounds like he’s got some serious street cred when it comes to all things money-related.
Prior to joining Politico, Gregorio spent two years as a press officer at the first-ever EU Delegation to the UK. And get this—he started right after Brexit happened! Talk about being thrown into the deep end of international politics and economics.
But that’s not all—this dude also cut his teeth in journalism as a London-based reporter for the Italian daily Il Foglio and HuffPost. He even covered the infamous 2019 Election and Boris Johnson’s premiership! Oh, and let’s not forget about his pandemic coverage too; this guy was everywhere!
His work has been featured in prestigious publications such as The Spectator, New Statesman, and Tablet. It seems like wherever there’s an important story happening in Europe or across the pond in good ol’ Blighty, Gregorio is right there with his pen and paper—or more likely these days—his laptop.
Hailing from Rome but having studied at University College London and London School of Economics (fancy!), Gregorio is fluent in both Italian and English—and he even speaks French too! Ooh la la!
A Renaissance Man With A Penchant For All Things Financial
I don’t know about you guys but hearing about someone so well-traveled (in terms of education), multilingual AND with experience reporting on major political events makes me feel slightly inadequate sitting here writing satirical articles…
But hey—I’m sure we can find solace knowing that while we may never be able to match up to Mr.Sorgi over here—we can certainly appreciate him from afar while sipping our morning coffee or teaSponsored Product before diving headfirst into another day filled with mundane tasks.
“Here lies us mere mortals—who will never reach financial journalistic greatness—but are happy enough reading about those who do.”
The Future Looks Brighter Already
All jokes aside though—it really does seem like Politico has made quite the catch by bringing Gregorio onto their finance team roster. With his background covering everything from Brexit fallout to pandemics—not forgetting elections along the way—the man clearly knows what he’s doing when it comes to dissecting complex economic issues.
