Heather will also take responsibility for the company’s International Research Centre and the combined operations of Hong Kong and Singapore.

In the US, David Kieselstein will be CEO North America.  David will be working with Bridget Armstrong who will become Executive Vice President US Consumer Sector Head.  In Europe, Judith Passingham retains her role as CEO Europe and Denis Delmas is Deputy Managing Director Europe.  Denis will also have responsibility for Global Marketing Communications

Reviewing and developing TNS’ overall client offer will be the responsibility of Kirk Ward who moves across from his position as Global Product Development Director at Research International to become Offer Development and Integration Director at TNS.  

Also taking positions on TNS’ Senior Global Management Team is Stephen Factor who retains his role as the Global Head of the Consumer Sector and will be responsible for the TNS Global Account Programme. Also Jordi Ferrer becomes Strategy and Corporate Development Director.  

Furthermore, Research International’s former Group Human Resources Director Catherine Connolly will now become Global Head of Human Resources for the merged business.

Pedro Ros, CEO of TNS said:
“I am very excited by the combined wealth of talent we have within the merged business.  Both Research International and TNS bring different strengths to the table in terms of their solutions and research insight, and this is reflected in the level of knowledge and experience within the Senior Global Management Team.  Over the coming months it is the team’s responsibility to ensure that our combined offer reflects our position as the world’s largest custom business, as we begin to shape the future of the research industry.”
