Gavin is a senior technology and business leader who has been with Refinitiv and its predecessor companies for more than 20 years. He currently leads the Product Engineering organisation responsible for the transformation of Refinitiv’s Access platform – a core capability which provides Identity and Access Management, Entitlement and Provisioning capabilities across the companies desktop and enterprise platforms, and the market moving data which they provide.
Gavin studied Computer Science at the University of Wales, Swansea, before moving to take up a software engineering position in the real-time market data industry, working from a barn outside of Cambridge. In the time since, and through numerous acquisitions, Gavin’s winding career path has been shaped by a knack for identifying and highlighting problems or inefficiencies, and subsequently being tasked with their resolution, along the way helping to shape the Elektron Real Time and Historical Data businesses.
Prior to moving back into Engineering leadership, Gavin held the position of Head of Enterprise, EMEA – responsible for innovation on topics of Cloud and AI/ML whilst setting and leading the vision, strategy and execution for Refinitiv’s market leading Enterprise propositions and commercials in the EMEA region, and for Historical Market Data globally.
Away from the office, Gavin enjoys pretty much anything involving the water, photographing the world, and spending time with his young family.
