NY Times reporter Kocieniewski joins Bloomberg
He will work on the financial crimes team, according to a spokeswoman.
Previously Kocieniewski had been a reporter on the paper’s Metro desk since 1995 where he focused on law enforcement, corruption and its offshoot and the New Jersey government.
In 2013, he was part of the team awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting “for its penetrating look into business practices by Apple and other technology companies that illustrates the darker side of a changing global economy for workers and consumers.’
In 2011, Mr. Kocieniewski examined the efforts by businesses to lower their taxes and the debate over how to improve the tax system in a series titled “But Nobody Pays That.’’
In April 2012, the series was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting. The Pulitzer jury said his work “penetrated a legal thicket to explain how the nation’s wealthiest citizens and corporations often exploited loopholes and avoided taxes.”
Kocieniewski joined The Times in 1995. Previously, he worked at The Detroit News from 1986 to 1990, and New York Newsday from 1990 to 1995. He has covered criminal justice and politics for most of his career.
He graduated from the State University of New York at Binghamton in 1985, and Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 1986.
