Gideon Lichfield

Senior editor

Gideon Lichfield joined Quartz after a 16-year career at The Economist, which took him from the science desk in his native London to postings in Mexico City, Moscow, and Jerusalem, covering uprisings, wars, trade disputes, business feuds, political rivalries, social protests, philosophical arguments and bar-room brawls. In 2009 he moved to New York City, and became part of the founding team at Quartz in 2012. The main thing he remembers from all his travels are the languages, of which he knows five well enough for interviewing evasive politicians, two more well enough to read, and one just well enough to haggle in.
