Chris Evans, the online editor for Ten Alps, is a journalist, copywriter and web content manager.
Having graduated with a degree in English Literature, he spent five years as a finance journalist for Datamonitor and later Belgium-based Bureau van Dijk Electronic Publishing, where he specialised in reporting breaking news on worldwide mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
As senior editor, he used to manage the editorial team and write a regular monthly column providing expert commentary on the M&A market for Insider Dealmakers Guides.
Chris then spread his creative wings to become a copywriter where he produced engaging speeches, PR, prospectuses, news, features and all manner of online and offline copy for a range of clients - from the University of Manchester and the Northwest Regional Development Agency to Savills and KPMG.
He’s an advocate of plain, clear and concise English and campaigns against the jargon and empty phrases that litter the world’s screens and publications. As Ten Alps’ dedicated online editor, he’s committed to continually improving the company’s online presence through effective use of language, layout and design.
He’s not to be confused with his more famous, richer namesake.
