Geoff Selig is the Executive Chairman of IVE Group. They started out as a printer more than a century ago and they’re still in the printing business, but with a difference. Malcolm Maiden gave Geoff a call to find out more about the business.
Malcolm Maiden entered journalism at the Australian Financial Review in the early ‘seventies after studying economics and law at Australian National University.
He worked for the Australian Financial Review and The Age in the ‘70s, then travelled overseas before rejoining the AFR in 1980. There he worked in a variety of positions, including Chanticleer columnist (1983-86), New York-based United States correspondent (1986-88), and Deputy Editor (1990-1993).
In 1993 he joined The Age as Business Editor and between 2007 and May this year (2016) was The Age’s Senior Business Columnist, appearing also in The Sydney Morning Herald and other Fairfax publications.
Malcolm won the all-media Walkley Award for business reporting in 1997 for an article about ructions inside Australia’s largest resources company, BHP, and was short-listed for a Walkley award the following year. The Walkley is Australia’s highest Journalism honour.
He is the recipient of other awards including three Quill awards for business journalism and the 1990 and 2000 Commonwealth Media Award for business journalism, open to writers in the various Commonwealth nations.
