Reuters appoints head of asset management branch
UK/EUROPE – Reuters has named the executives who will head its four customer segments, following the announcement in June that it was to split its operations into four principal areas: asset management, investment banking and brokerage, corporates and media, and treasury.
Jane Platt, who joins Reuters from Barclays Stockbrokers, is to head the asset management segment.
Devin Wening will manage the Investment Banking and Brokerage segment.
Sarah Dunn will be responsible for Corporates and Media and Julia Holland will lead Treasury.
The four executives will report to Philip Green, Reuters COO.
Wening and Dunn will be based in New York, while Platt and Holland will work out of London.
Tom Glocer, Reuters chief executive, says that the group’s business transformation programme is an “exciting period of change.”
He continues, “I am delighted that a professional of Jane Platt’s experience and standing is joining Reuters to head our new asset management segment.”
Platt was appointed chief executive of Barclays Stockbrokers and Barclays Trust Co. in 1997.
