Kantar names Jon Foged as Australia CEO

WPP AUNZ’s Kantar has appointed Jon Foged as Australian CEO.

Effective immediately, Mr Foged will take the helm of the Kantar’s Australian businesses (Kantar Millward Brown and Kantar TNS), relocating permanently from Singapore where he was Chief Strategy & Business Development Officer for Kantar APAC, and CEO of Kantar Cambodia, Myanmar and Cambodia.

Mr Foged started his career with Kantar in Australia, initially leading the Motorola account in both regional and global roles, going on to head up the Kantar TNS Melbourne office. He later relocated to Asia to become the MD of the Kantar TNS Singapore business for three years.

The appointment follows months of Foged working locally to help manage the Australian business through a period of transition. He replaces Tania Kullmann, who has decided to take a sabbatical to focus on her family.
