Pamela Williams to depart the Australian Financial Review

WilliamsEditor-at-Large of The Financial Review and author of the book Killing Fairfax Pamela Williams has announced she is taking redundancy and plans to spend the next year or so writing a book.

The departure of the well respected and multiple Walkley winner Williams is another significant loss for the national business newspaper which last year confirmed the departure of a number of senior editors as part of a major significant redundancy round.

Last year news website Crikey reported that Williams had been controversially knocked back when she first applied for redundancy with suggestions the move may have been a form of “payback” for penning Killing Fairfax, which painted a negative picture of systemic mistakes over a number of years by Fairfax’s senior leadership.

In an email to staff editor-in-chief Michael Stutchbury confirm that Williams had now been given redundancy and wrote they wished her all the best:

“Pam wants to focus on writing the novel she has had on her agenda for a long time. We thank Pam for her decades of great journalism at the Financial Review and wish her the best with the novel,” he said.
