Stephanie Ruhle, a former managing director at Deutsche Bank, has been hired by Bloomberg Television as a correspondent, TalkingBizNews reported. Ruhle will co-anchor “Inside Track” on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. with Erik Schatzker.
She started her career in finance in 1997 with Credit Suisse First Boston. At CSFB she served as a vice president and was the highest producing credit derivatives salesperson in the U.S.
After a six year stint at Credit Suisse, Ruhle moved to Deutsche Bank where she worked as managing director in structured credit sales within the fixed-income division.
What this means: There’s someone on TV who really knows something. The first time we noticed her, she was talking about credit-default swaps, and unlike many reporters we’ve heard, who quote them without context, she actually made some astute observations.
Throughout her career, she’s focused a lot of her energy on helping other women succeed.
Ruhle started the women’s networking program for global markets at Deutsche. She served as the co-captain for non-target school recruiting. She’s also been active in the White House Project, a not-for-profit that focuses on advancing women and she serves on the board of Girl Inc. of NYC.
“I agree with our first female U.S. secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, who said that there’s a place in hell reserved for women who don’t help other women. I really live by that,” she told Working Mother when she graced the cover of the magazine.
Ruhle, a native of New Jersey, earned her bachelor’s degree in international business from Lehigh University. During college, she spent two years studying in Guatemala, Italy and Kenya.
She currently resides in Tribeca with her husband Andy — who she met while working at Credit Suisse — and their two children.
