Wall Street Journal reporter Cara Lombardo is now covering activist investors.
She joined the paper in 2017 as a reporter on the real-time news desk.
Before that, Lombardo worked as a legislative relief reporter for the AP in Wisconsin’s statehouse and as a reporter for the Wisconsin Center for Investigative Journalism.
She interned on the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s investigative team, where she broke the story of an inmate dying of dehydration in Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s jail.
Before becoming a journalist, she worked as a CPA and auditor at PwC in New York and Boston. Lombardo has graduate degrees in journalism and business from the University of Wisconsin and a bachelor’s degree from its business school.
