Adapting to changes going on in the world
by Chris Roush
Tom Keene of Bloomberg Television was interviewed by Alister & Paine, an online magazine, about his career and his work at Bloomberg.
Here is an excerpt:
Alister & Paine: How did you get your start at Bloomberg?
Tom Keene: After 9/11 my investment business got incredibly slow. So I called Bloomberg up looking for a job, they invited me in and said you have to work with Matt Winkler in news. We walked over to see Matt Winkler with no appointment, we talked a bit and he said come back tomorrow. I came back there next day, we walked into a meeting he said this is Tom Keene our new Head of Global Strategy. That’s Bloomberg.
Alister & Paine: What’s changed since you came on board 10 years ago?
Tom Keene: We’ve seen three slowdowns and the company adapts to that. Our hallmark is we listen to our clients. They’re hurting right now, it’s challenging out there in finance. We’re listening especially hard to them about what they need and what they don’t. It will be a very exciting 2013 for us bringing out new things on the terminal. What we need to do in our world of news, TV, radio and print is also adapt to the changes that are going on within the media and bring that over to the terminal customer.
