Andrew Ross Sorkin

The New York Times
Chief M&A Reporter
New York, NY, USA

Andrew Ross Sorkin is an award-winning journalist and the best-selling author of Too Big to Fail.

He is The New York Times's chief mergers and acquisitions reporter and a columnist. Mr. Sorkin is also the editor of DealBook (nytimes.com/dealbook), an online daily financial report he started in 2001, and an assistant finance editor of the paper's Business Day section.

Too Big to Fail, which is being made into a movie by HBO, was described by The Financial Times as "an extraordinary achievement that will be hard to surpass as the definitive account." It was short-listed for the Samuel Johnson award and the Loeb Award.

Mr. Sorkin is a frequent guest host of CNBC's "Squawk Box" and often appears on "Charlie Rose" on PBS. He won a Gerald Loeb Award in 2004 for breaking news and the World Economic Forum named him a Young Global Leader in 2007.

Mr. Sorkin began writing for The Times in 1995 under unusual circumstances: he hadn't yet graduated from high school.
