It's going to be DW from Refinativ. She will be so proud, so humbled, to lead you all and take layoffs to margin while globetrotting in 1st class to be so proud, so humbled to work with such amazing people around the globe, while also shopping. And eating. Nom nom nom! Be sure to follow her on social media for such pride, humility.
David Wenig recently qui ebay... maybe he'll come back at Reuters for round two?
Stuart Brown perhaps?
Wasnt Neil Masterson a lay down misere to take over as CEO? Confusing as the TR / Refinitiv crew were so adamant over the past few years.
I wouldn't be surprised if it were BP, so he can continue the remarkable innovation, business health culture, commitment to product excellence, and cost-cutting to growth (snicker & eye-roll), for which he's well known.
I seriously doubt anyone could be enticed into coming back or even staying to lead this sinking ship. I'm not convinced it's worth saving.
Curious if anyone thinks there is someone suitable within the company. Easy to come up with a list of "who isn't" but there are some good people in the company. Or maybe even suggest from some who have left that you might entice to come back.
Smith sent an email this morning denying it all.
I thought SBell was the likely person to replace, although there were also rumors at one point that he was going to leave too when JS did. NM will surely have his hat in the ring.
