CHICAGO – NielsenIQ has become an independent company after the closing of its acquisition by Advent International in partnership with incoming executive chairman and chief executive officer James Peck. As a standalone business, NielsenIQ is better positioned to accelerate its transformation and strengthen its market-leading position. 

Three new leaders will join NielsenIQ. Mohit Kapoor joins as chief technology officer, overseeing all aspects of technology. Steve Matthesen, a Nielsen veteran, joins as chief strategy officer to help develop and execute the corporate strategy and other key initiatives. Curt Miller joins as chief transformation officer to drive organizational alignment that supports NielsenIQ’s growth strategy. 

“NielsenIQ has a unique opportunity to become a nimble partner with the flexibility to increase strategic investments and innovation in the future,” said Peck. “Our independence underscores our commitment to a turnaround plan that will enable us to better support our customers and partners and deliver maximum value while adapting to changing market and customer dynamics.”
