Thomson Reuters has appointed Manvinder Singh Banga to its board of directors as a non-executive director, effective on 1 January 2009, and indicated that Dick Olver will retire from the board at the end of this year.

David Thomson, chairman of the Thomson Reuters Board, comments on the appointment of Banga: “He has deep knowledge of Asian business which will prove invaluable as Thomson Reuters looks to capitalise further on opportunities in that region.”
