TNS says Lambie-Nairn will work to ‘improve the look and feel of TNS deliverables’ and will also work with global marketing director Tim Isaac on the group’s brand identity.

Lambie-Nairn says, ‘My approach has always been to make the complex simple, and fulfill commercial imperatives through outstanding creativity. I am very excited to join TNS and believe there is a fantastic opportunity to boost success by placing creativity at the heart of the business.’
