Richard Quest Biography

Richard Quest is CNN's foremost international business correspondent and presenter of "Quest Means Business;" the definitive word on how we earn and spend our money. Currently based in New York, he is one of the most instantly recognizable members of the CNN team and an editor-at-large of CNN Business.

"Quest Means Business" destroys the myth that business is boring, bridging the gap between hard economics and entertaining television. Quest's dynamic and distinctive style has made him a unique figure in the field of business broadcasting. He has regularly reported from G20 meetings and attends the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland each year. Quest has covered every major stock market and financial crisis since Black Monday in 1987 and has reported from key financial centers globally including Wall Street, London, Sao Paolo, Tokyo and Hong Kong. Before joining CNN in 2001, Quest worked at the BBC for 16 years, where he was the North American business correspondent, based on Wall Street.

Quest is the established airline and aviation correspondent at CNN. He currently presents the monthly CNN Business Traveller show, the definitive authority on making the most of doing business on the road - moving from A to B on company time. As a business travel specialist, Quest has become a voice of authority on subjects like the launch of the Airbus A380. Earlier this year the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) awarded Quest the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award for his reporting on the travel business.

He has extensively covered the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 across CNN/US and CNNI. In fact, he authored a book titled "The Vanishing of Flight MH370: The True Story of the Hunt for the Missing Malaysian Plane." Quest has fronted the CNN Freedom Project documentary Cocoa-nomics, which explored how the chocolate industry is trying to eradicate slavery from its supply chains.

Quest is also the face of CNN’s coverage of major UK news events. He has guided an international audience through various events such as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the 2011 marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, and various breaking news stories. Quest is more than just business; there are few journalists who have had guests as varied, from His Holiness, The Dalai Lama to actress Joan Collins to founder of Playboy Magazine, Hugh Hefner.

Besides his primary duty on "Quest Means Business," he hosts other shows including "Business Traveler," "The Express," and "Quest's World of Wonder." He has been a contestant on "The CNN Quiz Show: The Seventies Edition," and he hosted the game show "500 Questions." Quest is openly gay and has spoken about his experience as a closeted gay man in the past.

He holds a Bachelor of Laws degree, which he earned in 1983 from the University of Leeds, and he is also a non-practicing barrister.
