London, July 13, 2015Kantar is pleased to announce a forthcoming consolidation of its activity in Israel. The move is designed to grow its critical mass in the market and to better serve local and global clients.  The move reflects the continued importance of the Israeli market to Kantar.

Until now Kantar’s local activity in data investment management (marketing research) has been through Kantar TNS (also known as Kantar TNS Teleseker), Kantar Media and Millward Brown licensee Shiluv, who successfully introduced a number of Millward Brown solutions into the market.  In October the licence agreement between Millward Brown and Shiluv will terminate and Millward Brown’s licence in Israel will be transferred to Kantar TNS as of November 1st 2015. 

Kantar TNS is the largest and leading market research agency in Israel; it is a full service agency with a unique product offer supported by a broad range of global business solutions. The move will see Millward Brown solutions distributed by Kantar TNS through dedicated client teams using Millward Brown’s proprietary solutions such as Link and Brand Dynamics.
