Jim Cramer, widely known as the host on Mad Money on CNBC, also serves as chairman of TheStreet.com, which he co-founded to provide daily commentary on the financial markets. Cramer is regarded as one of the most infamous and influential commentators on the stock market in the world.
Cramer’s start in journalism began with his role as president in The Harvard Crimson at Harvard College, where he graduated magna cum laude. After graduation, he worked as a journalist for such newspapers as The Los Angeles Herald Examiner and The Tallahassee Democrat, where he covered a broad range of topical issues. Cramer would soon proceed to help found American Lawyer magazine in New York.
Following his three years with American Lawyer, Cramer acquired a J.D. from Harvard Law School in 1984. However, instead of starting a law practice, Cramer worked in sales and trading at Goldman Sachs for three years. Cramer applied this experience to his own hedge fund, which he started in 1987.
While managing his hedge fund, Cramer began to become more involved in stock market reporting and commentary. He helped to start Dow Jones’ Smart Money magazine in 1992, and co-founded TheStreet.com in 1996 where he is a regular contributor and staff columnist. Cramer left his hedge fund in 2000 to pursue his work in media full-time.
As a speaker, Cramer delivers in an edgy, no-nonsense style that is sure to have audiences on the edge of their seats. Audiences can expect to leave Cramer's presentation with confidence, or even feverish excitement, about their financial futures.
