Mark Kleinman is Sky News’ City Editor and the London Press Club Business Journalist of the Year for 2011. He was previously City Editor of The Sunday Telegraph, before that he reported from Hong Kong on Asia's evolving role in the global economy for the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph.

Mark made his name as the mergers and acquisitions correspondent for The Sunday Times, where he broke a string of exclusive stories about major takeover deals.

Since joining Sky News in 2009, Mark has broken a series of agenda-setting stories. His biggest scoops include the takeover of Harrods by the Qatari royal family, news of Tony Hayward’s resignation as chief executive of BP following the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and the takeovers of Premier League football clubs Arsenal and Liverpool. Mark has also led the way with exclusive stories about the overhaul of Britain’s banking industry in the wake of the financial crisis. In September 2011, he obtained a leaked copy of the Government-commissioned Independent Commission on Banking’s report on industry reform, forcing its earlier-than-planned publication.

In 2010, Mark was shortlisted in the Specialist Journalist category at the RTS Television Journalism Awards for his work in his first full year at Sky News. He gained a BA in English Literature at the University of York in 1998 and began his career as a reporter on a number of business magazines, before moving to the Sunday Express in 2004. In 2006, while working for The Sunday Times, Mark won ‘Best Scoop’ at the Business Journalist of the Year Awards for his story about the takeover of P&O, the British ports and ferries operator.

Since joining Sky News, Mark has interviewed many of Britain’s most important business figures, including the chief executives of Lloyds Banking Group, Royal Bank of Scotland and Tesco.
