Kantar CEO Nasard Steps Down After 4 Months


Alexis Nasard, who was named Kantar Global CEO last fall (effective in January) has stepped down after just four months on the job. Nasard was the first full-time CEO of the company under its new ownership structure, a joint venture between WPP and Bain Capital with Bain as controlling partner with a 60% stake. WPP sold Bain its stake while retaining 40% in a deal that valued the research giant at $4 billion.
