Custom panels and research technology firm Vision Critical has relocated its French headquarters to accommodate staff numbers, which have quadrupled in the last 12 months and are set to expand further.
The new location is at 61 rue de Monceau, 75008, and a French version of the company’s web site is at www.visioncritical.fr .
Vision Critical France MD Patrick Klein comments: ‘This year, while maintaining our existing commitments to large French companies, we’re adding experts in other disciplines to bring together the best people, best technology and best proprietary panels.’
Globally, the company hired 109 new employees in 2009, and plans to add another 120 to the total in 2010. The French team has recently added Business Development Manager Charlotte Taupin, formerly of Ipsos, who will focus on the firm’s interactive online custom panels; and more hires are planned for the near future, to bring in specialists in a variety of research verticals, including consumer goods, technology and public affairs.
The company currently has offices in the US, Canada, the UK, France and Australia, with plans to expand global operations into China, Germany and other parts of Europe.
