It has been a privilege to lead the change and innovation in the Refinitiv business for the last nine and a half years. I am humbled by the commitment and hard work of our people and the partnership with the financial industry throughout this time, especially during the COVID-19 crisis.
From the original separation out of Thomson Reuters to completing the sale of Refinitiv earlier this year, I am enormously proud of everything we have achieved and the potential for the business as part of LSEG. Now, with the integration firmly on track and a strong performance in our first quarter as a combined business, I will support Andrea with the leadership transition we have been preparing for.
