David A. Vise, formerly a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for The Washington Post, is a senior advisor to New Mountain Capital, a leading New York-based private equity firm, and to New Mountain Vantage, the firm's public equity fund.

While at the Washington Post, Vise covered the FBI and the Justice Department along with numerous other beats on the Financial and National desks. The Google Story is Vise’s fourth book. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller The Bureau and the Mole, a critically acclaimed account of the betrayals of FBI double agent Robert Hanssen, and of Sweet Redemption: How Gary Williams and Maryland Beat Death and Despair to Win the NCAA Basketball Championship. Vise’s first book, Eagle on the Street, written with Steve Coll, was based on the four-part Post series, "The Man from Wall Street: John Shad's Reign at the SEC," which won the 1990 Pulitzer Prize.

A 1982 magna cum laude graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Vise has an M.B.A. from the Wharton School and an Honorary Doctorate of Literary Letters from Cumberland University. A former Wall Street investment banker at Goldman, Sachs & Co., Vise also studied at the London School of Economics.

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Vise started in journalism at The Tennessean, first as a copyboy and later as an intern reporter. He has been the recipient of numerous honors, including the 1990 Gerald Loeb Award for Distinguished Business and Financial Journalism and the 1992 Distinguished Alumnus Award from University School of Nashville. He also has won awards from the Maryland-Delaware-D.C. Press Association for coverage of the nation's capital city, the D.C. financial control board and other ground-breaking journalism.

In Washington, Vise has volunteered at Children's Hospital and Martha's Table Shelter. He is a board member of the World Union for Progressive Judaism and past president of Washington Hebrew Congregation. David and his wife, Lori, have three daughters, Lisa, Allison and Jennifer, and live in Bethesda, Maryland.
