UK— TNS has appointed former ORC International man Martin Grimwood as head of its financial services division in the UK.

The position was vacant following the departure from the company of former UK CEO Andrew Czarnowski, who had previously led the division on a temporary basis.

Grimwood first joined ORC in 1994 as a senior research executive and went on to become global director for financial services, serving as associate director, research director and divisional manager on the way up.

Over the course of his career he has conducted research for pensions companies, asset managers and media agencies.

At TNS, he will be responsible for launching a “new strategic direction” for the financial services practice, the company said, and building its global footprint.
