Andrew Ross Sorkin is the New York Times's chief mergers and acquisitions reporter and a columnist. Mr. Sorkin is also the editor of DealBook, an online daily financial report he started in 2001, and an assistant finance editor of the paper's Business Day section.
He authored the best-selling book, Too Big to Fail: The Inside Story of How Wall Street and Washington Fought to Save the Financial System—and Themselves. It was recently adapted as a movie by HBO.
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 SABEW Awards for breaking news in 2005 and again in 2006. In 2007, the World Economic Forum named him a Young Global Leader.
Mr. Sorkin began writing for the Times in 1995 under unusual circumstances: he hadn't yet graduated from high school.
