UK— TNS has folded several of its research and marketing strategy operations into a new corporate development division led by Matthew Froggatt as chief development officer.

The division houses the firm’s areas of expertise, qualitative and digital research, product management development and global marketing operations.

Froggatt (pictured) started his career with Infratest Burke/NFO in 1992, which became part of TNS in 2003. Since then he has served as managing director of specialist markets and was most recently global head of areas of expertise and global technology sector head.

His priorities in his new role will be to “manage the overall portfolio of products and services, deliver an ongoing innovation pipeline, integrate digital across the business and deliver a clear and consistent TNS brand positioning around the world”.

TNS CEO Pedro Ros said: “These are important changes for TNS and critical to our progress as an industry leader. The new corporate development division will ensure that we have the agility and flexibility to adapt to our clients’ evolving needs and that we consistently give them the best of TNS.”
