Reuters is the largest information services company on the planet. It sits on some of the most widely used data, but is that data’s time past?
We’ll find out with the company’s Devin Wenig. He has the task of sorting out how and where to add web-based data to the company’s panoply of information services. What is Reuters buying? What will it build? Why? The company also has some major product-related product launches up its sleeve, so maybe we can convince Wenig to reveal all.
Devin Wenig is the Chief Executive Officer of the Markets Division of Thomson Reuters. He leads the global financial services and media businesses, which provide indispensible information to professionals in the financial services, media and corporate markets.
