GERMANY— Jens Krüger has been promoted to head of the consumer and retail division at TNS Infratest.

He has been with the firm for the past 14 years, serving most recently as the consumer and retail division’s sales director.

The division, along with the rest of TNS Infratest, is currently being integrated with sister company Research International (RI). The new business will trade as TNS Infratest RI.

Hartmut Scheffler, CEO at TNS Infratest, said: “We are convinced that Jens Krüger will be able to bring the integration in the consumer and retail sector to a successful conclusion, so that we shall be able to offer our clients an attractive consultancy team and an even more comprehensive product portfolio.”

Earlier this month TNS Infratest said it was planning to reduce its workforce by 4% as a result of the merger with RI.
