Malcolm enjoyed a senior management career with Dow Jones, Capital Intelligence & Reuters, in Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Korea, Cyprus and South Africa, in country and regional management roles. Malcolm has co-hosted the daily 4-hour “Business Breakfast” on Dubai Eye since 2005 and has been awarded “Middle East Breakfast Show of the Year ” award at the international RadioCast awards, as well as the ‘Award for Excellence in Financial Journalism’ at The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England & Wales’ M.E. excellence awards
