Following a year of restructuring, the dust is in the process of settling for the various divisions of Thomson Reuters. It appears that as well as a number of exits, there have been a fair few significant reshuffles. One such move is the transfer of Gary Barr, Reuters’ ex-global head of EDM, from the US to Switzerland to take up a role in the vendor’s Markets division.
Accordingly, as from the 1 January, Barr has been head of the Markets division of Thomson Reuters Global Resources.
Barr’s previous role as head of EDM, which he was appointed in 2006, saw him spearhead the drive by the vendor to provide “data solutions” rather than raw data. Prior to this, he was in charge of the DataScope pricing and reference data business.
