UK— Information Resources has appointed Cary Schneider as executive vice president of European operations and transformation.

In his new role Schneider (pictured) will be responsible for developing and delivering all the firm’s operational and transformational strategies across Europe and will report to IRI International president Nigel Howlett.

Schneider has spent the past 20 years working with IRI in the US where he has held roles including managing all US content operations and managing all client service teams.

Nigel Howlett said: “Cary’s experience and track record with IRI will prove invaluable in Europe as we set new standards for operational effectiveness and quality.

“Furthermore as IRI becomes a truly globalised business, Cary’s expertise is particularly relevant as we develop solutions across continents for our multinational clients. His ability to combine operational rigour with excellent client service focus makes Cary an invaluable addition to the senior International executive team.”

IRI recently rebranded in the US as SymphonyIRI, and the international business is expected to follow suit later this year.
