US-based philanthropic online MR panel firm Op4G (Opinions 4 Good) has expanded to the UK and Europe with the appointment of Tariq Mirza as International Strategic Growth Advisor.
Op4G, which was founded in 2010, invites panel members to participate in paid online research studies, and then donate between 25% and 100% of their incentive payment to one of more than 300 non-profit organizations. The firm began panel recruitment in Europe and the UK in 2015, and now owns and operates proprietary panels in seven countries outside the US.
Mirza (pictured) joins with more than twenty years' experience of establishing local presences for international market research software and tech firms. Most recently, he worked for online qual firm Discuss.io as Managing Director, Europe. Before this, he was MD for Europe for survey and panel management software firm Kinesis Survey Technologies; he led UK business development initiatives for Dutch online reporting specialist Intellex Datamanagement; served as MD of research software firm NEBU UK; and set up operations for MR software and computer telephony firm Voxco. He began his career with Quantime, which is now part of IBM-owned SPSS.
Commenting on the expansion, Ryan Stoudt, Assistance VP of Client Development, said: 'We are thrilled to have Tariq join our organization to assist in the expansion of Op4G's presence in Europe. Based on his experience and skillset, we know he'll do a great job in helping us fill our objectives. Tariq brings with him a proven track record of success and we're excited to see how he can help our organization grow'.
