Bio

Evan Davis is a British economist, journalist and radio and television presenter best known as the host of the reality television series Dragons' Den, since 2005.

In the UK he is also known as a presenter of the Radio 4 programmes Today and The Bottom Line.

Davis was appointed as the BBC's economics editor in October 2001. Prior to this he worked as a economics editor on BBC Two's Newsnight programme, from 1997-2001.

Before joining the BBC as an economics correspondent in 1993, he worked as an economist at the Institute of Fiscal Studies from 1986-1988 and again from 1992-1993. Between 1988 and 1992 he also worked at the London Business School.

As the BBC's economics editor Evan was responsible for reporting and analysing economic developments on a range of programmes on BBC radio and television, particularly the Ten O'Clock News. He also had a role in shaping the extensive BBC coverage of economics across all the corporation's outputs, including online.

Davis joined the presenter team on Today in April 2008 following his six-and-a-half year stint as the BBC's economics editor.

Evan has won several awards including the Work Foundation's Broadcast Journalist of the Year award in 1998, 2001 and 2003, and the Harold Wincott Business Broadcaster of the Year award in 2002.

He studied philosophy, politics and economics at St John's College Oxford from 1981 to 1984 and obtained a Masters of Public Administration at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Evan has written and co-written several books, most notably Public Spending, and the Penguin dictionaries of economics and of business.

He is openly gay and lives with his partner Guillaume Baltz, a French landscape architect.
