Mark Inskip, the CEO of Kantar's UK and Ireland Media Division, has left the business to join staffing procurement firm Matrix SCM as Chief Executive Officer. He will be replaced on a temporary basis by EMEA MD Louise Ainsworth.
Inskip (pictured) joined Kantar in 2015 as Global CEO of its consulting business The Futures Company, and then served as Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer, before moving to his most recent role in 2019. Earlier, he was a partner at growth consultancy Manifesto, and his previous career included spells leading strategic consulting services in Europe for Ogilvy; working as a partner and helping to create a Digital Marketing Consultancy for Accenture; and helping to launch house.co.uk at Centrica.
He will now lead Matrix SCM, which helps clients to streamline the way they recruit agency staff. In a statement, Kantar wished Inskip well.
