Two more members of President-elect Donald Trump's cabinet were confirmed Wednesday morning.

Steven Mnuchin, a former Goldman Sachs partner and film producer, was confirmed as Trump's pick for Treasury Secretary. Mnuchin was long expected to be picked for the role.

Wilbur Ross, a billionaire investor known for turning around dying companies, was confirmed as Trump's pick for Commerce Secretary.

Both appeared on CNBC Wednesday morning.

Here are the two on set together.

A film producer and corporate 'turnaround' financier

During the campaign, Mnuchin was Trump's national finance chairman, a role that required him to help raise money for the campaign. Previously, he produced movies like "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,," "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "The Lego Movie."

One of Ross's biggest successes was the creation of International Steel Group in 2002 out of the ashes of three bankrupt U.S. steel companies. He later sold the company for $4.5 billion.

The Speech That Will Make Donald Trump President

WATCH | Ross' success with steel speaks to Trump's desire to create more U.S. manufacturing jobs. In one campaign speech, he promised to put "new American steel into the spine of this country." International Steel Group was sold to a Europe-based company.

Carl Icahn, another pro-Trump billionaire, said both would be "great choices."
