Head of Transformation
Requested by CTO of F&R to drive unification/rationalization strategy to converge desktop and data feed business, while aligning with wider Thomson Reuters’ platform strategy. Defined, agreed, and successfully executed roadmap to deliver, overcoming initial long-standing organizational silos, internal politics, disengaged key participants, and little to no management buy in or ownership.
Impact: Made gainful strides towards removing massive duplication between the desktop, data feed, and corporate technology functions, enabling savings of ~$95M in a few years.
- Positioned technology for $45M in savings via delivery of enhancements in Administration/Entitlements systems.
- Allowed for +$50M in savings by developing agreed plans to deliver consistent content to desktop and feed products.
- Ignited unprecedented cultural change, which broke down silos and enabled key technologists to freely collaborate.
