WPP's Kantar has appointed Amy Cashman and Darren Bhattachary as Co-CEO's of its Kantar Insights Division, taking over from Will Galgey who has recently been named the division's Chief Operating Officer.
Cashman (pictured left), who was previously UK MD, began her career as a graduate trainee and Junior Researcher at Infratest Burke, prior to its acquisition by NFO; then joined NFO Retail, before the NFO group was taken over by TNS. After this she worked for TNS in a number of roles, including MD, Financial Services & Technology; MD of Client Services; and MD of TNS Technology. Bhattachary (right) joined the group a decade ago, and has previously served in a number of roles including Chief Client Officer for Kantar Insights UK, as well as work at Kantar Public.
Galgey has moved into the COO position as part of a series of group management changes. Today's news follows the recent appointment of former Kantar Consulting exec Mark Inskip as UK and Ireland CEO, and the appointment of former EY director Craig Watkins as Kantar Public CEO.
Bart Michels, Kantar UK Country Leader, said of the moves: 'Amy and Darren, together with Mark and Craig all have proven track records in delivering growth and managing transformation. I am particularly pleased that three of these four appointments have been made through internal promotion, proving Kantar is a UK leader in providing rewarding career path and meaningful progression'.
