SINGAPORE — TNS has appointed company veteran Jon Foged as managing director in Singapore, replacing Hamish Munro who has left the business.

Foged has worked for TNS for more than 10 years, both in the UK and most recently in Australia as general manager of TNS Melbourne. He is also a global account director for one of the company’s key technology clients – a role he will continue to fulfil.

Asia Pacific CEO Chris Riquier said: “TNS is extremely proud of our ability to develop the career paths of our people and promote staff from within the organisation to senior leadership positions. Jon has been a key member of our Australian leadership team for the past six years and I am confident in his talent and ability to lead our Singapore business.”

Munro has been Singapore MD since December 2010. TNS said he was leaving “to pursue new opportunities”.
