Simon Jack – born 10 May 1971 – is Business Editor for the BBC.
Before entering journalism, Jack worked for a decade as a corporate and investment banker in London, New York and Bermuda. He has said that he neither liked the work, nor showed much ability at it.
In 2003 he joined the BBC’s business and economics unit and since then has worked on BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme and Radio 5 Live’s Wake Up to Money.
Jack replaced Declan Curry as business presenter for BBC Breakfast in October 2008. In April 2010, he presented BBC Breakfast alongside Sian Williams while regular presenter Bill Turnbull followed the 2010 general election campaign trail. In September 2011, he left the BBC Breakfast team to join BBC Radio 4’s Today.
