 Gary Ginsberg Biography

Gary L. Ginsberg is a lawyer, American political operative and corporate adviser, serving as a strategist in both the public and private sectors for more than 25 years. Ginsberg has bore witness to some of the most important events in recent American history and was known as “the connection to Washington on multiple instances” while working for names such as Bill Clinton, Rupert Murdoch and Jeff Bewkes. He served as the Senior Vice President and Global Head of Communications at SoftBank Group Corp. before resigning in 2020. Before joining SoftBank, Ginsberg served as Executive Vice President of Corporate Marketing and Communications at Time Warner and as Executive Vice President of Global Marketing and Corporate Affairs at News Corp. Ginsberg is the author of "First Friends: The Powerful, Unsung (and Unelected) People Who Shaped our Presidents" published in July 2021, which reached The New York Times Best Seller list. Throughout his career, Ginsberg arranged lunches with Bill Clinton, orchestrated a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton and arranged a meeting between Rupert Murdoch and Barack Obama. He was a point man for News Corp.’s 2007 purchase of Dow Jones, publisher of The Wall Street Journal, served as a senior adviser to Time Warner's CEO Jeff Bewkes and met with Jared Kushner at the White House about the Trump administration's concerns about CNN. Ginsberg gives a behind the curtain look at how the powerful members of our government and businesses make world-changing decisions.
