Hinton-Jones (pictured) was previously global chief operating officer at VMLY&R Health, where he was responsible for operational and financial strategy and effectiveness, as well as driving growth.

Prior to his spell at VMLY&R, Hinton-Jones worked in various senior roles including chief operating officer, chief financial officer and managing director and spent time working at Kantar and WPP.

The appointment follows the divestment and sale of Kantar Public from parent company Kantar to private equity business Trilantic Europe in September, creating a new standalone company.

Dr Michelle Harrison, global chief executive officer at Kantar Public, said: “In his role, Mark will be responsible for ensuring that our finance function is a key driver, and enabler of responsible, purpose-led and strategic growth around the world.

“Mark has an exceptional track record of delivering sustainable and impressive results and his skills and expertise will be a great asset to the business through our next phase of strategic development.

“His relentless focus on how we can best serve our clients globally and locally is outstanding, and he will be a tremendous addition to the global board.”
