CNBC Correspondent Shifts Role as She Joins Financial Firm’s Board

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, CNBC's Chief International Correspondent and co-anchor of Power Lunch, is joining the board of Dallas-based Beneficient, a financial services firm specializing in private equity products. The 1991 Wellesley College graduate will remain on CNBC as a contributor to the network offering analysis and commentary. Prior to joining CNBC in 1998, Caruso-Cabrera worked as a Reporter for WTSP-TV in St. Petersburg, FL. Prior to that, she was a Reporter and later a Special Projects Producer for Univisión, where she won an Emmy Award for a five-part series on children with AIDS. She also received a Broadcaster of the Year award in 2004 from the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. “For 20 years, CNBC has given me a front-row seat to cover everything from the great recession of 2008 to the Greek debt crisis to presidential elections. During my time at the network, I've also had the opportunity to interview the biggest newsmakers in business and finance,” Caruso-Cabrera said. “Now, I hope to take the same skills I have used as a journalist into the field of corporate governance as I join the board of a financial services firm. I look forward to maintaining my great relationship with CNBC as a contributor to the network.” More here.
