LSEG future Executive Committee appointments post-close of the Refinitiv transaction

London Stock Exchange Group (“LSEG” or “the Group”) continues to make good progress on integration planning in relation to the proposed acquisition of Refinitiv and today announces appointments to the Executive Committee. The changes will be conditional on, and take effect from, the completion of the acquisition of Refinitiv, which is expected in Q1 2021, subject to regulatory approvals.

The Executive Committee will lead the business and represents a combination of both companies reflecting customer facing expertise and deep market knowledge. The future Executive Committee will be:

  • David Schwimmer - CEO, LSEG
  • Anna Manz - Chief Financial Officer (joining LSEG on 21 November 2020)
  • David Craig - Group Head, Information Services & CEO, Refinitiv
  • Andrea Remyn Stone - Chief Product Officer, Information Services
  • Debra Walton - Chief Revenue Officer, Information Services
  • Daniel Maguire - Group Head, Post Trade & CEO, LCH Group
  • Murray Roos - Group Head, Capital Markets
  • Catherine Johnson - General Counsel
  • Tim Jones - Chief People Officer
  • Anthony McCarthy - Chief Information Officer
  • David Shalders - Chief Operating Officer and Head of Integration
  • Brigitte Trafford - Chief Communications and Marketing Officer

David Schwimmer, CEO, LSEG:
“I am pleased that the Executive team comes from a diverse range of backgrounds, from both businesses, and brings new members to the team.  This team has the skills and experience to execute on the strategy of our proposed combination with Refinitiv. I look forward to working with them to deliver for our customers, shareholders and other stakeholders.”

Diane Côté, LSEG Chief Risk Officer, has informed the Group of her intention to retire from the Group around the close of the transaction. LSEG has commenced a search for a replacement, who will be appointed to our Executive Committee. Waqas Samad, currently our Group Head of Information Services and CEO, FTSE Russell, will play a key role within the new structure of Information Services, reporting to Andrea Remyn Stone. A number of current members of Refinitiv’s Executive Leadership Team (ELT) will also have roles in the future organisation. Further appointments will be announced in due course.
