Reuters to Lose Enterprise Information Head Kevin Bradshaw

In a move that has caught the reference data community by surprise, Kevin Bradshaw has resigned his role as global head of Enterprise Information at Reuters and will leave the company shortly. It is understood Bradshaw is moving to a different industry. Reuters offers no comment yet on whether he will be replaced by an internal or external candidate or whether the head of Enterprise Information role will be taken on by his peers within the Enterprise division of Reuters.

The Enterprise Information business includes Reuters Pricing and Reference Data available via licences for DataScope – DataScope Select, DataScope Onsite, DataScope Equities and DataScope Fixed Income. Within the Enterprise division, Enterprise Information sits alongside Reuters’ Information Management, Enterprise Connectivity and Trade and Risk Management businesses, with other key Enterprise products including Reuters Market Data System and the Kondor + and Kondor Global Risk software solutions.

Peter Moss, global head of Enterprise at Reuters, says: “We wish Kevin well in his new career and thank him for his leadership of the Enterprise Information business and particularly Reuters DataScope Pricing and Reference Data which has seen it become a key driver of growth within the Enterprise division at Reuters.”

Under Bradshaw, Enterprise Information became the fastest growing business within Reuters, as he channelled significant investment into improving its offering for the middle and back offices. He oversaw the integration of Bridge’s EJV assets and, as well as spearheading Reuters’ push into the evaluated pricing business, also led its ongoing effort to create a counterparty data service in partnership with Credit Dimensions.
After joining Reuters in 1997, Bradshaw spent three years as strategy director for Reuters Information Division, providing information services to the FX, money, fixed income and equities markets. He was part of the effort to reorganise the Reuters group to create customer facing businesses, and then spent a year as COO for the Investment Banking Division, from where he crossed to head up the Reuters Enterprise Information business.
