Thomson Reuters names analyst as next head of investor relations
Tuesday 4 January 2022
Thomson Reuters announced its next head of investor relations in succession to Frank Golden who is retiring in July after 18 years in the role.
Gary Bisbee will report directly to Michael Eastwood, chief financial officer, and will be based in New York. He takes over on 1 March.
"I am pleased to welcome Gary into this strategic leadership position," Eastwood said. "Gary brings a wealth of knowledge and a strong network from across the financial and investment community to the company with over two decades of experience as a top equity research analyst at several leading global financial institutions.
"Having also covered us for many years, Gary is well positioned to continue to advance our strategy and vision to the market and among our shareholders. His leadership in this respect comes at a critical time as Thomson Reuters continues its transformation into a content-driven technology company.”
Bisbee formerly served as senior equity research analyst and managing director at Bank of America Securities, where he tracked and provided outlook on the leading business, technology, and information services companies. Prior to that, he spent time at RBC Capital Markets, Barclays Capital, and Lehman Brothers in similar roles. He began his career in institutional equity sales at Lehman Brothers.
Eastwood added: "I, along with the rest of the Thomson Reuters executive team, also want to thank Frank for his many years of service. He has worked in partnership with the company's leadership across some of the most important moments in our corporate history to educate and expand our shareholder base, including our acquisition of Reuters and our partnership with Blackstone for Refinitiv and the subsequent sale to London Stock Exchange Group. Frank and Gary will work closely together over the next several months to ensure a smooth transition and uphold the high standards of integrity and financial reporting, alongside strong analyst and shareholder relations.” ■
