At Marketplace, we have one core belief: Economic intelligence leads to economic empowerment. We’ve been on the air since 1989, and now we’re expanding our ability and commitment to better engage our audiences. 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 speak candidly and bring unique perspectives from business, media, philanthropy and other areas. These advisory members provide insight and recommendations to Marketplace leadership and help us think strategically 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 our advisory members and how their passions, expertise and humor brought them to Marketplace.
If you are interested in the Marketplace Board of Advisors or have questions about it, please contact Michelle Philippe.
