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.

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.
