Brennan’s Back – To Head Elektron Platform

Brennan Carley is back at Reuters, albeit it’s now Thomson Reuters and no doubt it has changed a bit since he was last there in a strategy role, around 1999/2000. His new job is as global head of the Elektron platform, the company’s low-latency managed hosting/co-location business.

Since his first stint at the company, Carley has held senior roles at Radianz (the Reuters/Equant joint venture that he helped set up), NYFIX and Spread Networks.

Details of the organisational structure at TR remain patchy since the management shake up at the end of last year, though it’s known that Carley reports into newish hire Ralf Roth, who in turn reports to Trading unit head Peter Moss, whose boss is David Craig, head of the financial/risk business (what Thomson Reuters Markets once was, more or less).

Meanwhile, former enterprise technology key man Terry Roche has gone MIA. More on all of this should any information ever be published.
