Former Money Marketing journalist passes away

Nicola York, the former deputy features editor and news reporter for Money Marketing has died. She was 34.

Nicola was diagnosed with bowel cancer last October and died peacefully in the early hours of Wednesday 3rd August surrounded by her family.

In nearly five years at Money Marketing, Nicola wrote features before moving to cover protection and then pensions on the news desk.

She moved to work for public affairs consultancy Cicero in 2010 and was co-founder of Congo Connect, which campaigned against human rights abuses in eastern Congo. She was also an aspiring playwright.

Former Money Marketing editor John Lappin says: “Nicola was an elegant writer when she arrived, but in her time on MM, she came to know as much about IFAs and financial services as anyone on the paper.

“She was, despite her Duchess-like charm, firm, fair and tough as old boots, which she proved on the pension patch and, subsequently, in visiting the Congo. We will miss her very much.”

A memorial service will be held in London next Wednesday 17th August. Those interested in attending should contact Cicero Consulting.

  2. So sad and so young!

  3. Far to soon.

  4. Such as sad loss. I worked alongside Nicola at the MM desk for two years and she was one of the best. Such a good journalist and a terrific person to work beside. A big part of our success at the time was the strength of our team, and Nicola was at the heart of that. RIP.

  5. What a scourge this disease is. A life hardly begun and so cruelly ended.

  6. A very sad loss, and a life and talent that should have continued for many years to come.
