Robert Berner is a senior writer in BusinessWeek's Chicago bureau who concentrates on investigative stories involving consumer credit, the medical industry, high finance, and government spending. Previously, Berner was a correspondent covering retailing and consumer products.

Prior to joining BusinessWeek, Berner wrote for The Wall Street Journal, covering retail and food companies. In an investigative series on Rite Aid while at the Journal, Berner and a colleague uncovered massive financial fraud at the drugstore chain that ultimately led to a Justice Dept. investigation and fraud convictions of top executives.

At BusinessWeek, Berner has won a 2008 Association of Health Care Journalists award for "Fresh Pain for the Uninsured" and a 2003 Medill/Strong award for Best Profile of P&G CEO A.G. Lafley. In 2005, he was a Loeb Award finalist for a profile of financier Eddie Lampert. In 1985, Berner began his journalism career as a reporter for the Bennington Banner in Vermont. After leaving the Banner, Berner became a business reporter for The Patriot Ledger in Quincy, Mass.

Berner is a graduate of Oberlin College.
