Efficio / Kantar

Becoming “One Kantar”: The power of partnership, storytelling, sound strategy, and precise execution

Amidst a global pandemic and restructure that saw Kantar sold to Bain Capital, the Efficio/Kantar team spent the last two years delivering $60m+ of savings ($90m including cost avoidance) – surpassing its target by c.60% – all while new CPO, Stephen Day, settled into his new role. Together, Day and Efficio implemented a new global procurement operating model based on centre-led category management, brought to life through the new, diverse procurement team (50/50 gender split). With focus on visibility of data and processes across global regions, the team delivered a credible savings plan that demonstrates Procurement’s enduring value generation throughout the business.
