Cheddar hires new executive, to expand in Europe in 2018
Business news channel Cheddar has hired a chief people officer and general counsel and has plans to expand into Europe, reports Alex Heath of Business Insider.
Heath reports, “Cheddar, the business news network that’s been called CNBC for millennials, just made a key hire and plans to open its first broadcast studio in the UK next year, CEO Jon Steinberg told Business Insider.
“Anjali Kumar, a former Warby Parker exec and top Google lawyer, will be Cheddar’s first general counsel and chief people officer. She’ll be in charge of expanding Cheddar’s rapidly growing list of distribution deals and overseeing its more than 85 employees.
“‘The company is a deal machine, and I worked with Jon before at Google, so look for us to move even faster in contracting distribution,’ Kumar said in a press release.
“Launched in February 2016 with live business news coverage from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, Cheddar has since opened multiple satellite studios in locations like Los Angeles, The Hamptons, and the Flatiron building in Manhattan.”
