Fielding Jumps to Kantar Media

Starcom MediaVest’s Richard Fielding has jumped to Kantar Media North America in the newly created position of chief client officer. Fielding was most recently vp and director of global research for Starcom MediaVest Group.

In his new position, Fielding will oversee development and promotion of new services and core products for the global research firm. He’ll be based in Chicago and report directly to Terry Kent, managing director of Kantar Media N.A.
