“Todd's extensive experience in finance, where he has spent a significant portion of his career, in combination with his experience leading both our IT organization and our Vanguard program will help us maximize the effectiveness of our new platform.”

Hyatt will report to Walker and continue as a member of the IHS executive leadership team. Walker continues to report to Stead.
