Debra Walton

Chief Revenue Officer at Refinitiv

 

Walton has lived and worked on three different continents and manages a global team of professionals that spans 65 countries. Her career expertise is equally diverse. Her resume is stacked with experience in product, content, sales, and marketing roles. Her role as Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer at Refinitiv, a financial data and infrastructure provider, puts her in charge of all the organization’s sales, client relationship management, strategic partnerships, and market development activity. Walton also sits on the Tradeweb Board of Managers, and this is her second year being named a Top Global Sales Leader. She is passionate about gender equality and diversity in leadership. “I’ve really come to the conclusion that our success comes down to us as individuals. We need men to step up and champion women,” she said at a Generation W event. “And we need us as women, all of us, we need to step up, we need to embrace opportunities, and we need to have the courage to lead.”
