The research business will be affiliated to global research consultancy, TNS. “Mongolia presents a strong opportunity for our clients, who are keen to understand more about their consumers," said Chris Riquier, TNS CEO for APAC. "We were the first international research consultancy in many markets across the region, including Myanmar in 2013, and we are pleased to partner with Y&R to be first to establish a presence in Mongolia.”
Y&R Mongolia will continue to be headed up by managing director Tuul Purevsuren, reporting to Y&R Asia President Matthew Godfrey.
