Kantar has appointed Annie Ho as chief financial officer, Insights Division, Asia-Pacific. Ho will replace Stephen Gardner who is retiring after almost 25 years with Kantar and the WPP Group.
She joins Kantar’s regional senior leadership team from her tenure as CFO and vice president, Finance and Business Control, Asia-Pacific at the Volvo Group in Singapore. Before that, she worked as Dentsu Aegis Network’s Finance Director, Asia Pacific, and as Head of Finance for Pepsico in Shanghai City, China.
APAC Divisional CEO Wayne Levings comments on the appointment: ‘Annie’s global outlook and commitment to drive best-in-class financial management and operational intelligence while supporting strong commercial growth through business partnering will be a strong asset to our region and business operations. I’d also like to thank Steve for his outstanding commitment to Kantar and the very strong support he has provided our business over more than two decades. We wish him the best’.
