Dow Jones & Co. CEO Almar Latour sent out the following announcement on Monday:


I’m pleased to share that Frank Filippo is appointed EVP, Business Information & Services, responsible for Risk & Compliance, Factiva and Newswires during a period of transformation and renewed focus on growth.

All B2B business activities, including sales and sales marketing, will report into Frank.

Information services are key to the future success of Dow Jones and will be an area of investment, innovation and change. Frank is well prepared for that exciting challenge: He is a Dow Jones veteran, having joined us in 2005. Since then, he has held many roles across B2B and B2C.

Frank currently oversees the Print and Customer Service teams, which will remain under his purview as he takes on the B2B portfolio. He will continue to report to me and serve as a member of the senior management team.

Nancy McNeil will continue to serve as Chief Revenue Officer for our B2B businesses and will report into Frank.

In addition, Jan-Coos Geesink will join us as special advisor on B2B strategy. Jan-Coos previously served as a senior executive for Refinitiv. Prior to that, he spent seven years at Thomson Reuters where he was Managing Director Legal UK before becoming Managing Director Global Sales & Marketing Financial & Risk. He was also Chief Executive at Travel Security Services. His rich background in a variety of key functions in the Information Service industry will help guide Dow Jones as we face important next steps. He will serve as an advisor to our business leaders, Frank and me, and will report to me.

Please join me in wishing Frank and Jan-Coos well in their new roles.
