The “One Kantar” Procurement Transformation: Powerful partnership, sound strategy, and precise execution

Amidst a global pandemic and an internal restructure that saw Kantar sold to Bain Capital Private Equity, the Kantar team, in partnership with Efficio, has spent the last two years delivering $60m+ of savings ($90m including cost avoidance methods) – an increase of ∼60% beyond the goal of $41m, all while new CPO, Stephen Day, settled into his new role.

Day has grown a team from three people to 35 people, with a 50/50 gender split, including two apprentices from refugee backgrounds. Its diverse background contributes to a wide variety of perspectives, resulting in cohesive, proactive, and impactful bottom-line outcomes.
