ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. - January 5, 2016 - CNBC today announced the ten finalists participating in THE PARTNER, the all-new series featuring Marcus Lemonis -the renowned investor, entrepreneur, and host of CNBC's hit show "The Profit." Premiering Tuesday, February 28 at 10pm ET/PT, the five episode series follows Lemonis as he searches for the perfect partner to help him manage the fast-growing portfolio of businesses he's acquired. In the end, one candidate will receive the opportunity of a lifetime: a half-million dollar contract, an equity stake, and the chance to help Lemonis manage his empire.

After investing more than $40 million of his own money in companies featured on "The Profit," Lemonis is now ready to invest in "The Partner." Thousands of people hailing from all corners of the country applied for the opportunity to participate, but only ten were invited to Chicago to take part in the final interview process. They are:

"It has been a privilege to work so closely with some of the most hard-working entrepreneurs in the country, all of whom have shown me the heart and desire to turn their businesses around," Lemonis said. "In this new adventure, I am looking for someone with that same drive and passion to help inspire these up and coming business leaders, sustain their growth and their enthusiasm, and ensure that the sound investments we made today, are even more sound in the decades ahead."

Self-made millionaire and serial entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis is best known for lending his expertise to struggling small businesses around the country on "The Profit." As a result of successful partnerships on CNBC's original series, Lemonis has added a variety of new product lines and services to his holding company, Marcus Lemonis Enterprises LLC.
