Area of ExpertiseBusiness journalism, telecom industry
Alexandra Posadzki is an award-winning business journalist based in Toronto. She covers the Canadian telecom industry for The Globe and Mail's Report on Business.
Her industry-leading coverage of the dramatic power struggle at Rogers Communications Inc. was recognized with several Canada Best in Business Awards from the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing, including gold medals in the “scoop” and “beat reporting” categories. Throughout the two-year long regulatory review of Rogers’ $20-billion takeover of Shaw Communications Inc., investors came to rely on Alexandra’s unparalleled coverage and consistent scoops. She is also a regular guest on The Globe’s daily news podcast, The Decibel.
Before taking on the telecom beat, Alexandra was The Globe’s capital markets reporter and wrote extensively about Canada’s fledgling cryptocurrency industry, particularly through a regulatory lens. Her network of contacts and deep knowledge of the space proved valuable during the collapse of Canada’s largest virtual currency exchange, QuadrigaCX. Alexandra’s contributions to The Globe’s award-winning coverage of the massive cryptocurrency Ponzi scheme led to her being prominently featured in multiple documentaries, podcasts and radio shows on the topic, including a 2022 Netflix documentary called Trust No One: The Hunt for the Crypto King.
Alexandra is a graduate of Toronto Metropolitan University’s Master of Journalism program and has an honours B.A. in psychology and literature from York University. She has also completed the Canadian Securities Course.
Prior to joining The Globe in 2017, Alexandra spent three years as a multimedia business reporter at the Canadian Press newswire, where she wrote about banking, real estate and the burgeoning cannabis industry, and produced a series of investigative stories on Canada’s lax anti-money laundering regime. She has also worked at the Toronto Star, Business News Network, Global News and The Globe's B.C. bureau. Alexandra got her start in journalism at York University’s student newspaper, the Excalibur.
Her first book, Rogers vs. Rogers, is set to be published by McClelland & Stewart in 2024.
