Paul Cowper is re-joining Kantar as a Senior Partner in the firm’s business consulting practice. Amy Cashman stated, “It is great to have Paul back on board as we pursue opportunities in our new and established sectors.”

Cashman, who is the CEO of Kantar’s Insights Division in the UK and Ireland, continued,“Businesses are operating in ever more competitive markets, making relevant and actionable insight absolutely crucial to guide their decisions. Paul’s expertise makes him the ideal person to have in the team as we help clients navigate dynamic markets.”

The start of the year is an especially challenging time for brands to win a share of consumers’ wallets. Going into 2022, this has been exacerbated by steep inflation, a boom in the cost of living, and heightened energy prices – meaning many households face a squeeze on their budgets.
