TNS has appointed John Abraham as Head of Strategic Development and Marketing, with immediate effect. Abraham will be reporting to David Lowden, Chief Executive, TNS, and will be responsible for developing new business opportunities and leading TNS’ corporate marketing team.
He will also have overall responsibility for the company’s leading Internet solutions division, TNS Interactive. Abraham is the first of two major appointments to support TNS’ new drive to deliver more strategic business insights to clients. The second announcement, which TNS will make in due course, will be the appointment of a new Innovation Director.

He will also bring the entrepreneurial spirit that we need to identify, develop and build new business opportunities in the marketplace.”
