Forbes tech reporter Matt Drange has been moved to a beat covering the businesses of President Donald Trump.

He will be focused on Trump’s business dealings — not politics — and the money behind the president.

Drange has been in the San Francisco bureau, covering tech and money and power in Silicon Valley. He expects to eventually move back to that beat.

Drange and Ryan Mac are currently Loeb finalists for their series of stories revealing Peter Thiel’s funding of Hulk Hogan’s lawsuit against Gawker.

He previously covered  Silicon Valley for the Center for Investigative Reporting, a position he has held since September 2012. Before moving to the Bay Area, he covered politics for the Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting. Drange started his career at the Eureka Times-Standard.

Drange was a Loeb finalist in 2015 in the explanatory reporting category, and he won a Society of American Business Editors and Writers Best in Business Award for his coverage of Superfund sites in Silicon Valley.

Drange has degrees from Humboldt State University in California and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
