Ralf’s Role at Reuters

Subscribe to our newsletter

OK, that should be Thomson Reuters, but the historical name just fitted the headline better, and I’m a bit of a poet. I’m referring to Ralf Roth, who recently joined TR from Deutsche Bank, as we noted here. And we also said that we were intrigued by his ‘Elektron Transactions’ job title and would be finding out more.

So, the official line on what Ralf is doing is:

“Ralf is responsible for the value added propositions provided through Elektron using best in class assets from across Thomson Reuters and third parties. His team will build out the Elektron community and cloud based propositions, driving and extending our partnership strategy to provide our customers with the widest and most flexible data, technology and service stack possible.”

Ralf will also take responsibility for Enterprise Solutions Strategy, reflecting the central role Elektron has in the realisation of both the Enterprise Solutions and the broader Thomson Reuters Markets strategy.”

Within the Enterprise Solutions business, Roth will be working closely with Terry Roche, who will have coalface responsibility for pretty much anything realtime – data feeds, platform (I guess thats’ what RMDS is these days) and Elektron.

Meanwhile, former enterprise content head Mike Powell will be looking at how the various enterprise offerings fit together, and with what the Financial Professionals & Marketplaces division is providing (such as the Eikon terminal). Synergies and all that.

Roth’s appointment comes as TR is generally reorganising, and in quite a big way. My colleague Andrew Delaney has more on all of that here.
