100. Baseline Financial (WTC2 impact area)
Edited on Tue Jul-04-06 01:16 PM by DrDebug
It's surprisingly difficult to get a complete overview of all the companies in WTC. Like mentioned about First Commercial Bank was small office of bank and not much was known about it. However on a number of tenant lists Baseline Financial is listed on the 77th and 78th floor and appears much more relevant than First Commercial Bank.

Baseline Financial is part of the Thomson Corporation. The Thomson Corporation is one of the world's leading information companies, focused on providing integrated information solutions to business and professional customers.

The company operates through four groups:
Thomson Legal and Regulatory;
Thomson Learning;
Thomson Financial;
and Thomson Scientific and Healthcare.

Thomson started out with newspapers in the United Kingdom, including The Sunday Times and The Scotsman, and it owned Scottish Television and later purchased the The Times of London. The media assets were sold to Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation.

Baseline Financial had offices on the 77th and 78th floor of WTC2 and employed 175 people and suffered three casualties during 9/11.

Chairman: David K.R. Thomson

Edit: Murdoch needs special emphasis...
