Thomson Reuters (TRI) Chairman David Thomson is moving away from his family's traditional hands off approach to it business interests and taking a more assertive role. The new modus operandi comes amid disappointment at the company's poor share price and earnings performance since the merger of Thomson and Reuters in 2008, and is characterized by the replacement last week Geoff Beatti as the head of the family's holding company, which owns 55% of Thomson Reuters.
