Gregg Whitbread departs Euromoney following new ownership and rebranding
Whitbread’s departure from Euromoney coincides with the firm’s rebranding to Delinian, a trade name that consists of Euromoney’s specialist brands serving the financial and professional services and asset management industries. There will not be brand or name changes for any customer-facing products. The Fastmarkets brand is not changing and will continue to be used by that business.
The rebranding to Delinian came on the heels of the acquisition of Euromoney, a B2B information-services business in November 2022 by funds managed by Astorg and Epiris, the latter being a private equity firm based in London which is also invested in AXIO, a group of seven data, information and events businesses based in North America, Europe and Asia.
The Group will be separated into two businesses with Fastmarkets becoming a stand-alone entity, owned and controlled by Astorg, with the Delinian businesses operating under the majority ownership and control of Epiris.
Delinian, fka Euromoney, is a portfolio of 20 information services businesses providing critical industry information to customers in over 140 countries. The company’s many brands are popular go-to sources for critical data and expert insights and are deeply embedded in clients’ workflows.
Delinian has customers in more than 140 countries and over 2,200 employees located in North America, South America, Europe and Asia, who tap into its 20 brands for their actionable data, analysis, intelligence, and access to markets.
