An award-winning journalist, Andy Hoffman is the Asia-Pacific Reporter for Canada's national newspaper, The Globe and Mail. Focusing primarily on business and economic issues, he has reported from China, India, Philippines and Australia, among other countries in the region.
Mr. Hoffman was most recently awarded a 2011 National Newspaper Award, shared with colleague Mark MacKinnon, for an investigation into Sino-Forest Corp., the Chinese timber firm whose shares collapsed following sensational fraud allegations.
In 2010, Mr. Hoffman won a National Newspaper Award as a member of The Globe team covering BHP Billiton's $38-billion hostile takeover bid for Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan. Mr. Hoffman's contribution to the effort was a story that uncovered how foreign resource companies -including BHP - had previously broken employment and investment promises made to the Canadian government aimed at winning approval for takeovers of domestic mining firms.
In 2008, Mr. Hoffman was nominated for a National Magazine Award for a profile of Frank Giustra and the Canadian mining magnate's unlikely and controversial friendship with former U.S. president Bill Clinton.
Mr. Hoffman joined The Globe and Mail in 2005. Previously, he was a television reporter for Canada's Business News Network, where he covered a variety of major stories including the rise and fall of Conrad Black and the events of September 11th, 2001.
Mr. Hoffman is currently based in Vancouver, where he lives with his partner Jennifer MacLeod and his dog Tally.
