On the Information Highway

From engineer to treasury: Kevan Parekh joined Thomson Reuters after a detour to the car industry.

Newly minted Thomson Reuters corporate treasurer Kevan Parekh thrives on the fast pace at the $13 billion financial information company, but he started his career on a completely different track: as an automotive engineer.

After four years, Parekh wanted to know more about the business side of the car industry so he headed for an M.B.A. at the University of Chicago. A summer internship led him to treasurer’s office of General Motors, and after he graduated in 1999, he spent 10 years there.
