John Lynch, hired by Bloomberg just months ago to head a team of analysts spearheading the development of a pricing evaluations business (Reference Data Review, April 2006), has parted ways with the company. No comment was available from Bloomberg, beyond the assertion that its evaluations strategy remains in place. But this must be viewed as a setback to the provider’s evaluations plans, since Lynch is an evaluations heavyweight. He previously ran the Electronic Joint Venture (EJV) evaluations data provider before and during its ownership by Bridge Information Systems, now part of Reuters. Bloomberg continues to advertise for analysts to join its newly created evaluated pricing team, and in late September began touting for an “experienced business manager” for the pricing service, based in New York.
