Fenby joined Reuters in 1963, becoming Editor in 1973 and remained there until 1977, becoming the Paris bureaux chief for five years.

Since returning to London from Hong Kong in 2000, Fenby has worked at various on-line services and as Associate Editor of the newspaper, Sunday Business. Between 1998 and 2008, he published ten books, five on China and others on the Second World War and France. He contributes to a wide range of publications in the UK, US and Far East and broadcasts often, as well as speaking at conferences and lecturing at universities and public forums on China.
