S&P Hires Ex-Thomson Reuters Data Consultant Nash for Enterprise Role

Standard & Poor’s has hired ex-Thomson Reuters EMEA and global head for its data consultancy business Penny Nash into its Enterprise Solutions team. Nash had been with Thomson Reuters since 2005 and has been involved in its data team and its corporate actions focused business lines over the course of her career at the data giant.

Nash actually began her financial services career with Reuters back in 2000 as a market analyst in the corporate actions team, a role she held until 2002, at which point she switched to equity data, where she spent nearly two years. In 2004 she had a brief stint at EDM specialist technology firm Acxiom and then in the public sector for the NHS, before returning to Reuters in 2005.

Her return to the data giant saw her assume control of the corporate actions product development roadmap for DataScope, first as a data specialist and then later as a content business owner. She was promoted to global head of corporate actions in 2008 and held this role up until January this year, at which point she became head of data consultancy. She held this role up until June this year, at which point she parted ways with her long time employer for S&P.

It has been a busy year of entrances and exits within Thomson Reuters, as it restructures its business and refocuses its commercial endeavours.
