Said Cambournac, "India provides a major growth opportunity for our clients and for Nielsen. We wanted someone who had prior experience in a growth market and has worked closely with clients to help them win in the market place. Piyush is a passionate corporate entrepreneur with a proven record of achievements and is talented in applying marketing science to meet strategic objectives and maximize business performance. We are sure that he will lead the region to meet the organizational goals of Nielsen and help our clients achieve their objectives."

Added Mathur, "There is a huge spotlight globally on South Asia and India, and I am truly excited to be part of this rapidly growing economy. My vision over the next few years is to help our clients grow profitably while helping Nielsen transform into becoming an academy company.”
