My fave car guy is leaving Motley Fool for @CNBC!
Best of luck to @john_rosevear for his incisive looks at the auto sector and especially for his humor.
CNBC will especially benefit from his no nonsense look at the EV space.
Best of luck to you, John!
In another new hire for the newsroom, John Rosevear is joining CNBC.com to cover the burgeoning electric vehicle beat. John will cover old and new automakers as they grapple with a zero-emissions future. He will report to Mike Calia as part of the transportation team. John comes to us from The Motley Fool, where he spent nearly 15 years, ending his tenure as a senior automotive reporter. While there, he focused on the rise of electric and self-driving vehicles for an audience of (mostly) retail investors.
Not surprisingly for an automotive reporter, John was born in Michigan. But — plot twist! — he grew up in the seaside town of Barrington, Rhode Island. He graduated from Cornell University with a degree in government. John currently resides in Berlin, Massachusetts (not too far from Boston). He enjoys hiking, playing guitar, tinkering with old cars and FaceTiming with his three college-age kids. He looks forward to moving to New York in the not-too-distant future.
