Jacqui von Hirschberg, currently Executive Director of TNS in Australia moves into a pan-Asia Pacific role as Regional Director, Clients; Mandy Tam joins the business as Regional Director, Business Development.
Jacqui joined TNS in 2002 and has held a number of senior roles, including acting CEO for TNS Australia during 2011 and has led significant international programmes for TNS’s clients. In her new role, Jacqui will be responsible for collaborating with clients across the region to ensure they have access to the very best, integrated thinking from TNS to address their business challenges. She will lead the regional client service effort and drive programmes that enable real partnership with TNS’s clients.

Chris Riquier, CEO, TNS Asia Pacific said, “We are absolutely committed to putting client needs at the heart of everything we do. We know that our clients want a genuine business partner who is focussed on helping them to grow their business; Jacqui and Mandy have both demonstrated true client-centricity in their approach and I am confident that in their new roles they will significantly increase our ability to drive our clients’ long-term success.”
