Platts has named Martin Fraenkel, most recently managing director and global head of energy at CME Group Inc., to the position of chief content officer. In this role, Fraenkel will be responsible for managing the global editorial team, as well as for developing strategies for price assessments and analysis, and all publications for the global commodities markets that Platts covers.
Fraenkel will report to Larry Neal, president of Platts, and serve on the business’ executive committee. He will assume his role on June 1 and will be based in London.
“Martin’s knowledge of and status in the commodity markets, as well as his success in managing global teams and growing global businesses, will bring immediate value to Platts and to our customers,” said Neal. “Martin will drive the continuing development of our editorial team as Platts evolves and expands its offerings across pricing, news and analysis. He is a welcome addition to our team.”
“I’m pleased to be joining Platts at this time of rapidly changing markets,” said Fraenkel. “The chief content officer role gives me a unique opportunity to employ my markets and derivatives experience for a company steeped in energy and an expanding array of physical markets, and whose customers seek ever more information, data and analysis to support their decision making and risk management.”
