He was a senior leader in charge of expanding Bloomberg's business with news broadcasters and publishers, setting up strategic partnerships and selling Bloomberg content - Bloomberg Terminal, News, Photos, Video, and Data - to Digital, Print, and Broadcast media outlets throughout the region.

At Thomson Reuters, Soman managed Reuters Video Services which provides customized content to broadcast clients in the form of weekly news programmes, live markets updates and expertise from our journalists, interviews with market movers and bespoke packages from the Reuters Digital Video team. And in his prior role, Soman directed Reuters content strategy for Consumer Media in India. His responsibilities included Reuters' customised content deal with ET Now - the business channel from Economic Times, managing dedicated correspondents in New York, London, Hong Kong and Singapore.
