Eileen Lynch/Refinitiv

As CMO, Eileen leads Refinitiv’s global marketing and communication function. Working in close collaboration with customer proposition and sales and account management, the marketing and communications priorities and marketing investment are aligned to the highest sales, profit and retention opportunities. Eileen and her team partner closely with the People function to ensure the brand acts as the underpinning to the cultural transformation and employee experience key to Refinitiv’s success. Her team is the driving force behind the development of the Refinitiv brand. 

Eileen also uses her passion as a communicator to enable and empower veterans and fight against human trafficking. She sits on the board of directors for the Bob Woodruff Foundation, a nonprofit that helps create healthy, positive futures for our service members, veterans, and their families. She is also on the board of trustees for the Thomson Reuters Foundation, which shines a light into the darkness of human trafficking.  

 Eileen was most recently the CMO of the Thomson Reuters Financial and Risk business which made her uniquely qualified to lead the brand transition from the Financial & Risk business to Refinitiv. She also led Global Brand Marketing at Thomson Reuters for nearly nine years. Eileen previously held positions at Merrill Lynch where, as Managing Director of Corporate Marketing, she co-led the marketing transition for the Bank of America / Merrill Lynch merger. 

Eileen has deep Irish roots, coming from a large Irish Catholic background.  All four of her maternal and paternal grandparents are from County Cork. They each immigrated to NY, where they met and married their spouses. For many years her grandfather, Thomas Lynch, owned a saloon on Hudson and Barrow.
