Reuters appoints global sales chief

Reuters has appointed a global head of sales for the news agency.

She is Anita Tobias (photo), sales vice president for the Americas who joined Thomson Reuters in 2011 as global business director after two years with Bloomberg.

Over recent months she has been serving as Reuters interim global head of sales. Based in New York, she will now oversee the news agency’s entire sales organisation as well as continuing her day-to-day leadership of the Americas sales team.

Steven Schwartz, global managing director of Reuters News, wrote in an announcement: “Her sales expertise, media industry experience and deep organisational knowledge are critical assets, which we look forward to leveraging more broadly as she officially assumes this expanded role.”

Schwartz also announced that Evan Garricks would join Reuters on 29 June to take on the new and dual role of London-based global head of sales operations and head of sales for regions stretching from Europe to Asia.

He joins from wireless communication company American Tower Corporation where he recently completed a three-year assignment to establish and implement sales operations for Uganda. ■
