Carsten Knop is an economics editor at the Frankfurter Allgmeinen Zeitung.
Knop studied business administration at the University of Münster and completed an internship at the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in 1993. His first editorial position followed his journalistic training in 1995: he went to Düsseldorf for the “Börsen-Zeitung” and in 1996 returned to the Düsseldorf office of the FAZ. After three years of reporting on companies on the Rhine and Ruhr, he went to New York as a business correspondent in May 1999, followed by a move to San Francisco in April 2001 to observe what was happening in “Silicon Valley”. In 2003 he returned to the Frankfurt headquarters, where he has been the editor responsible for corporate reporting since the beginning of 2007 and, since the end of 2014, for economic reporting. Knop is married and has two children.
