SINGAPORE — Kantar-owned global research consultancy TNS has appointed David Lansanah as its new global head of innovation and product development.


He will initially be based in London before relocating to Singapore later in the year and is replacing Steve Landis who is retiring from TNS the end of 2015 after seven years.

Lansanah joins from Ipsos, where he was managing director of the global MarketQuest practice, responsible for identifying new business opportunities and innovation platforms. He has more than 20 years’ experience in the market, and previously also held roles with Synovate and AcuPOLL Research.

In his new role, Lansanah will lead and develop the firm’s global innovation practice, improving the existing product portfolio and leading TNS’s team of innovation experts.
