Precision Opinion has more than 700 CATI stations; a focus group facility located in Las Vegas; a full-service panel building, management and online data collection specialist team; and a programming division which specializes in Voxco and CfMC platforms. The firm has conducted research and analysis for the last three presidential campaigns, holds contracts with government research centers, and works with commercial companies.

In their new roles, Brogan and Unter will drive the integration of multi-mode data collection to enhance the firm's analytics offering, with additional focus on the hospitality industry and community-based 'Quality of Life' analytics. Commenting on the appointments, company President Jim Medick said: 'With Chris and Kevin in these roles, the Precision Opinion Analytics and Consulting Division will become more of a staple in our quality data delivery than a commodity.
