In the US, data, insight and 'action services' provider datadecisions Group has promoted Dino Fire to the role of President of Research and Analytics.
The business, which was formed last year through the merger of FGI Research & Analytics (FGI) and Web Decisions Group (WDG), provides a range of services which include consumer data enhancement and appending, predictive analytics, marketing research, custom audiences across all social media and digital channels, and omnichannel campaign management. Fire (pictured) joined in March as Chief Data Science Officer, having previously served as Chief Science Officer at FGI, where he worked for twenty years prior to the merger.
