Associate Editor

Brisbane, Australia

As Associate Editor of Executive Traveller, Chris Chamberlin oversees the site's coverage of airline loyalty programs and credit cards, with an eye towards the smartest ways to earn and burn frequent flyer points. Based in Brisbane, Chris regularly travels within Australia and overseas to review the latest in business class and first class, along with airport lounges and hotels.

After completing his undergraduate degree at Griffith University, Chris began writing for Australian Business Traveller as a contributor in mid-2013, and joined the team as a full-time journalist in 2014. In 2018, he moved into the role of Senior Journalist, and in 2019, took on the role of Associate Editor when Australian Business Traveller was rebranded and relaunched as Executive Traveller.

In the same year, Chris completed further study in Tourism and Travel Management at UQ Business School, and in 2020, was named a semi-finalist for the Online Achievement Award at the 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards QLD. This also made him a quarter-finalist for 2020 Queensland Young Achiever of the Year.

Chris has also been published by The Age, The Australian, The Canberra Times, INTHEBLACK, The Journey, The Sydney Morning Herald, WA Today and The Weekend Australian, and syndicated by The Australian Financial Review, Bloomberg Pursuits, and others.
