In the 1990s, legendary dealmaker Bruce Wasserstein saw that mainstream media seriously lacked a deep focus on the thousands of transactions driving the economy. He had a vision to create a first-class newsroom focused solely on the cross-section of mergers and acquisitions and all other changes in corporate control. Founded in 1999, as the first to report exclusively on deals, The Deal began its mission to report on the news, people and tactics surrounding what we refer to as “the deal economy”, a set of interrelated deal activities driving corporate growth in a continually changing global market. From a news agency distributing print newspapers and magazines to the global media and digital intelligence organization that we are today.
