Jo-Anne Hui-Miller

Jo-Anne Hui-Miller is managing editor - premium & features at Inside Retail. Jo has been reporting on news and current affairs ever since she began snooping around her parents’ bedroom, eavesdropping on phone conversations and writing what she discovered in her diary since she was in primary school. So really, she’s been wrangling major deadlines since she was six years old and has now mastered the fine art of juggling several of them at the same time. From the Sydney Morning Herald to News Corp and Telstra, Jo has been covering the business sector for almost 15 years and she’s as comfortable chatting to global CEOs and discussing business strategies as she is checking out the hottest new in-store experiences and attending fashion runway shows.
