Dan Roth is the editor of LinkedIn, based out of LinkedIn's NYC offices.
In his role, Roth oversees a team of editors across the globe – from Berlin to Sydney –who handle curation of breaking news and views on LinkedIn; creation of original articles and videos; and the cultivation of new and top contributors across the site. Over the years, he helped build and launch the Influencer program, the 55-country-spanning Daily Rundown, the Work in Progress series and podcast – and other areas of original and curated articles and insights. The never-understated Business Insider once dubbed him the "most powerful business journalist on the Internet."
Roth's background is as a writer and editor. As a senior writer at Wired, he wrote deep dives on Larry Page's Android vision; Brian Roberts’ Comcast dreams; and a cover story on Shai Agassi’s Better Place (a Loeb Awards finalist). His 2009 story on Demand Media was included in Yale Press' Best Technology Writing 2010. Before Wired, he was a founding writer at the Condé Nast Portfolio.
Roth was also the editor of Fortune.com and a longtime senior writer and editor at Fortune. Some of his most cited stories include secretly embedding at America’s top employer, The Container Store; a rare joint interview with Warren Buffett and Bill Gates; a profile of the founder of BitTorrent (selected for Best American Science and Nature Writing anthology); and a story in which he followed the creators of Skype as they were building their company (named Best Story on Entrepreneurship at the Business Journalist of the Year Awards).
