For much of the 2000s, Anthony DiClemente was a familiar name to those listening in on quarterly earnings calls hosted by radio and TV companies with publicly traded stock.
Now, the longtime Wall Street financial analyst is in-house at CBS, and will stay in the role once a Viacom reunification is complete.
The companies, which plan to recombine their operations to become “ViacomCBS,” confirmed Wednesday that DiClemente will hold the role of EVP/Investor Relations for the combined company, reporting to CFO Christina Spade.
In his new role, DiClemente will coordinate and oversee outreach strategies to the investment community. In addition, he will be closely involved in refining the combined company’s corporate strategy and competitive positioning.
DiClemente joined CBS in June, as EVP/Investor Relations.
Prior that, DiClemente was Senior Managing Director at Evercore, a role that came following a four-year stint as Managing Director of Nomura.
For most industry veterans, DiClemente is remembered for his stint as an internet and media research analyst for Barclays, from September 2008-November 2013. Before that, he was a media and entertainment research analyst for Lehman Brothers.
“I am thrilled that Anthony will step into this key leadership position at the newly unified company,” Spade said. “His deep knowledge of our business, his vast research experience, and the relationships he’s built with investors during his time as a Wall Street analyst covering the media industry will be invaluable to us and the future of our company.”
