At Marketplace we have one core belief: economic intelligence leads to economic empowerment. After nearly 30 years on the air, we are expanding our ability and commitment to directly engage Americans. Our mission is to raise the economic intelligence of the country through the unorthodox story, the casual conversation and the unexpected angle on the news.

To help us do this important work, Marketplace has assembled a Board of Advisors to engage in candid dialogue and bring unique perspectives from their experiences in business, media, philanthropy and other areas. These advisory members provide insight and recommendations to Marketplace leadership and provide rich ground for strategic thinking about the future of the organization.

And it wouldn’t be Marketplace if the Board of Advisors didn’t bring a little fun to the role. Get to know more about our advisory members, and how their humor, passions, and variety of personal and professional expertise brought them to Marketplace.
