Stephanie Denton

Editor, Post

Stephanie joined the Post team as a reporter in 2004 and held roles including senior reporter, supplements editor and special projects editor before becoming editor in 2013.

Stephanie has taken the title into the modern era with the Post Live app launching – a continuously updated content app, which became responsive across all platforms in 2016. Also that year, Stephanie oversaw the switch from publishing weekly to monthly, introducing the high quality magazine we know today – publishing the first monthly edition in May 2016 along with a redesigned website reflecting reader demands for online daily content and breaking news with longer form detailed analysis in print. In an age of search engine optimisation, Post also added ‘Insurance’ to its moniker to become Insurance Post, a title it had been affectionately known by for years.

Under her stewardship the Insurance Post brand has won the British Insurance Broker's Association best Publication Award (2019) and Willis Towers Watson media awards (Re)Insurance & Risk Publication of the Year (2020).  

Beginning her career by winning the British Insurance Broker's Association Most Promising Newcomer in 2005 and Medical Journalism Awards Best newcomer, trade journalist in financial healthcare in 2006, she continued to take home awards Biba Best Trade News (2006) and Stephanie was named as Biba Overall Journalist of the Year in 2018. 

In addition to writing about the insurance industry, Stephanie also has a thing or two to say about it, has been asked to comment on various areas of the industry on television and radio.

As editor, Stephanie is also heavily involved in the brand's events and is on the British Insurance Awards judging panel.
