WPP AUNZ has announced that the appointment of Jon Foged as CEO of Kantar for Australia.

“We have a very strong desire to continue working with Tania,” Connaghan said.

“We highly value the kind of talent that she has brought to our business, and we will be exploring opportunities that will allow us to benefit from her wisdom and leadership on an ongoing basis.
