Reuters scoops Eni GC to head Emea team

Darragh Fagan of Italian energy company Eni has been appointed as assistant general counsel at Reuters for the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions.

Fagan will be reporting to current global general counsel Rosemary Martin.

He is filling the position left by Claire Chapman, who left the post after just two years to head the legal team at automotive retail and distribution outfit Inchape.

Fagan brings with him more than 10 years’ experience from Eni, where he was assistant general counsel for the Middle East, North America and the North Sea.

Meanwhile, Chapman’s role has been filled by Kirsty Whitehead in the interim.
