Thomson Reuters has appointed industry veteran David Kelly chief technology officer at its Enterprise business where he will be responsible for the development of Elektron, the firm's new global high-speed data distribution network.
Kelly will lead technical strategy across the Enterprise business and the continued development and deployment of all the Elektron assets.
Prior to Thomson Reuters, Kelly served as MD and CTO at SAC Capital Advisors and head of technology for the Americas at Barclays Capital. He has also held strategic technology roles at JPMorgan.
He's joined at the Enterprise unit by two more fresh appointments: global head of enterprise content Roseann Palmieri and Tanya Ezekiel, chief of staff and global head of business operations, Enterprise.
Palmieri is charged with driving the firm's growth and business plan for pricing, valuations, reference data and enterprise data management. She has previously worked at Merrill Lynch as chief data officer and MD for enterprise information management.
Ezekiel will be responsible for business execution and strategic initiatives across the Enterprise business. Previously she served as MD for Bank of America, leading business development activities for the company's global markets sales group.
Jon Robson, president, Enterprise, Thomson Reuters, says: "Thomson Reuters core business growth in new content and technology is driving the next generation of trade automation solutions for the global financial markets. These key additions to the Enterprise leadership team will enable us to continue our fast-paced expansion, deliver open technology platforms and propel our business ever higher."
