Marci Rossell Ph.D. (Economics)

Former CNBC Chief Economist, CNBC

Marci Rossell electrifies audiences nationwide, speaking on the nexus of economics, politics, culture and the media. Her animated style was honed when she served as the popular, lively Chief Economist for CNBC in the months immediately following September 11th. The former co-host of the well-known “pre-market” morning news and talk show Squawk Box, she takes complex economic issues, often dull in the button-down business press, and makes them relevant to people's lives, families and careers. Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities speakers bureau, she discusses America’s current and future role in the global economy, factors responsible for recessions and what to watch for, how Washington influences Wall Street and the markets, and the specific outlook for the U.S. economy over the course of the next 18-24 months. She is also able to discuss the stock market, investor behavior, consumer confidence and what accountable capitalism looks like in 2019.

Prior to her career in broadcast journalism, Marci served as Corporate Economist and Investment Spokesperson for OppenheimerFunds, one of the nation's largest mutual fund companies. Her success in the private sector led to her economic commentary being revered and ultimately her appointments on nationally-syndicated talk shows.

Before moving to Wall Street, she was an expert witness for Deloitte and Touche in court cases involving economic issues. Marci began her career as an economist with the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

Marci earned a PhD in Economics from Southern Methodist University, where she was named one of the Young Alumni of the Year in 2002. She brings a world of experience--from Main Street to Wall Street--when discussing the U.S. economy, international events and movements in capital markets. 

Her creative, thought-provoking commentary will ring in the audience members' ears well after she leaves the stage.
