Yvette Kantrow is executive editor for The Deal. Among her many responsibilities, she oversees the newsweekly’s coverage of investment bankers and other dealmakers on Wall Street. Kantrow also pens and edits the Media Maneuvers weekly column, originally aimed at illuminating various ways M&A deals were spun to investors. Over time, she has broadened the column’s focus on how the media covers financial matters.
Prior to joining The Deal LLC, Kantrow spent three years at American Banker, where she was a senior editor in charge of the paper’s coverage of large banks and corporate finance. She also was a staff writer for Investment Dealers’ Digest, where she regularly reported on Wall Street giants such as Credit Suisse First Boston, Morgan Stanley and Lazard Freres.
Kantrow holds a bachelor’s of arts degree in English literature from the State University of New York at Binghamton.
