Reuters chief financial officer Matthew Keen will take on interim responsibilities while the company searches for a new chief executive officer, reports The Baron.
The Baron writes, “Steve Hasker, chief executive of Reuters owner Thomson Reuters, said on Wednesday Matthew Keen, the agency’s chief financial officer and head of finance transformation at Thomson Reuters, would take on ‘interim responsibilities.’
“‘Matt knows the Reuters business inside and out, and will oversee the Reuters growth and investment program, leading the executive team until a new President is appointed,’ he wrote in a note to staff.

“Friedenberg’s replacement was discussed during a visit by Alessandra Galloni, London-based editor-in-chief, to Reuters newsroom at Times Square, New York.”
