Claes Bell

Claes Bell graduated from Florida State University with degrees in History and Writing, after serving as a staff writer and assistant Arts & Entertainment editor for The FSView and Florida Flambeau. He took a three-year hiatus from journalism to teach intensive reading at two West Palm Beach-area high schools before returning to journalism as a sports desk clerk for The Palm Beach Post, a freelance copy editor for Bankrate, and a freelance writer published on Bankrate and other outlets.

He joined Bankrate full time as a copy editor in 2007. In February 2009, he was promoted to reporter and now writes about banking, CDs, cars and a variety of other personal finance topics for Bankrate. Claes also frequently blogs, tweets, and appears regularly as a guest on various media platforms to speak on personal finance.

During his time at Bankrate, Claes has been part of two teams that won notable journalism awards, including a Sigma Delta Chi award from the Society of Professional Journalists for coverage of the Federal Reserve, and a Best in Business award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers for coverage of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law. He also helped establish Bankrate's presence on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter.
