Marc Hochstein

Editor in Chief

Marc Hochstein became the Editor in Chief of American Banker in July 2014. He joined the publication in 1998 as a reporter covering mortgages and has steadily added responsibility over the years. At one time or another he has overseen American Banker's coverage of consumer finance, payments, and community banking; the vibrant opinion blog BankThink; the wildly popular Morning Scan newsletter; and the reinvigoration of SourceMedia's mortgage publications. Marc was responsible for some of the earliest serious coverage of Bitcoin anywhere and chaired SourceMedia's successful Digital Currencies conference in July.
