Andrew Ross Sorkin
Andrew Ross Sorkin is the award-winning chief mergers and acquisitions reporter for the [i]New York Time[/i]s, a columnist, and assistant editor of business and finance news.

By the time he graduated from college he had 71 articles published in the paper. He started full time in 1999, based in London as the European M&A reporter, before moving back to New York in 2000 to take up his current post. Sorkin has won a Gerald Loeb Award, the highest honour in business journalism, and a Society of American Business Editors and Writers Award. In 2007, the World Economic Forum named him a Young Global Leader and the following year Vanity Fair named him as one of 40 new members of the ‘Next Establishment’.
