Tom Bergin is a Senior Correspondent for Reuters whose book, Spills and Spin: The Inside Story of BP, is the prizewinning account of how Britain’s largest company used slick communications to mask a flawed business model and how, after causing America’s worst ever oil spill, management turned in on itself.
Tom has also reported on financial crime, terrorism, the global economy and international relations, from over 20 countries across Africa, Europe, the Middle East and North America. His work has been translated into over a dozen languages and published in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, International Herald Tribune, the London Times, Canada’s Globe and Mail, the Shanghai Daily and dozens of newspapers and magazines around the world. He is a regular television and radio commentator, appearing on CNBC, ITV, the BBC and other outlets as far away as New Zealand.
