Changes at the top at Thomson Elite
Thomson Elite has just announced two key management changes that have been made to support the increasing growth and drive the expansion of its global business. Jitendra Valera, previously Vice President of International, has been appointed to a new role within Thomson Elite as Vice President Global Strategy & Planning, and Kaye Sycamore, previously Regional Director for UK, Ireland & Asia Pacific has been promoted to Valera's previously held role of Vice President International.
Steve Buege, President & CEO of Thomson Elite said “Both these roles will be part of our newly created Strategic Marketing & Business Development function. These structural changes not only strengthen our management talent, but they also ensure a strengthened focus on both strategic business development and operational execution for our increasingly global business.”
Valera's new role, which will be based in the UK at the London office, will focus on developing Thomson Elite's global strategy and driving growth on a global scale. He will also take on new responsibilities for senior level co-ordination between Thomson North American Legal (TNAL) and Thomson International Legal & Regulatory (TILR) in the key growth area of software and services.
Sycamore will provide a dedicated focus on operations in the UK, Continental Europe and Asia Pacific regions, while continuing to boost the growth of the International division. Sycamore will join Valera on the Thomson Elite executive team and will be fully supported by the various functional and management teams in the US.
Sycamore says the sales success Thomson Elite has had outside of North America has spurred the need for leadership positions that address the macro planning needs of the region and the day-to-day operational challenges. “These changes will ensure that we continue to drive growth forward, whilst at the same time ensuring that our level of customer service to new and existing clients is local and relevant to the various regions we serve.”
Valera and Sycamore assume their new duties with immediate effect.
