Interactive Data has confirmed that Mark Hepsworth has returned to London to lead the company’s EMEA business as president. His responsibilities include the company’ pricing and reference data, trading solutions, managed solutions and desktops businesses in the region. Hepsworth remains a member of the company’s global executive committee.
Hepsworth moved to London early this year and was replaced in New York as president of Interactive Data’s pricing and reference data business by Andrew Hausman. Hausman joined Interactive Data’s BondEdge fixed income analytics subsidiary as president in 2012. His earlier career includes executive positions at both Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg.
Hepsworth has a longer history with Interactive Data having spent a decade as European managing director of the company’s real-time services, formerly known as ComStock, before being named as president of the business in October 2005. In this role he led the acquisition and integration of IS.Teledata AG, which became Interactive Data’s managed solutions business. Hepsworth moved on to become president of the company’s data pricing and reference data business with global responsibility in September 2007 and maintained this position before his return to London as president of Interactive Data’s EMEA business.
