MARCUS LEMONIS TAPS JULIANNA REED AS WINNER OF CNBC'S 'THE PARTNER'; NETWORK ANNOUNCES RETURN OF 'THE PROFIT' TUESDAY, JUNE 6

With Over $50 Million Invested in Companies Featured on 'The Profit,' Marcus Lemonis Returns to Bring Struggling Businesses Back from the Brink

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. - April 5, 2017 - Serial entrepreneur and investor Marcus Lemonis has selected "The Partner." Last night, on the season finale of the CNBC competition series, non-profit program manager Julianna Reed, of Santa Monica, California, learned that she would receive a half-million dollar contract, an equity stake in Lemonis' holdings, and the opportunity to help manage his extensive portfolio.

CNBC also announced that Lemonis' hit series "The Profit" will return with all-new episodes beginning Tuesday, June 6, at 10pm ET/PT.

During the finale, Lemonis addressed his decision to pick Reed as "The Partner":

"You always told me how much you wanted this and you can't teach people desire. And, you have a good sense of people and you have good common sense about what's right and wrong in business."

Prior to signing on as Lemonis' new business partner, Reed was the program manager for I Am That Girl, a non-profit organization helping young girls turn their "self-doubt into self-love." In that role, she managed special projects and sought funding for the organization via brand partnerships.

Prior to the June 6th premiere of "The Profit," Lemonis will host a special sneak peek episode on Monday, June 5th at 10PM ET/PT, featuring highlights of the upcoming season.

When Marcus Lemonis isn't running his multi-billion dollar company, Camping World, he goes on the hunt for struggling businesses that are desperate for cash and ripe for a deal. In each one-hour episode of "The Profit," Lemonis makes an offer that's impossible to refuse; his cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. And once inside these companies, he'll do almost anything to save the business and make himself a profit; even if it means firing the president, promoting the secretary or doing the work himself.
