Online panel firm Research Now has opened an office in Dallas, headed by newly appointed VP of Client Development, Joe Cunningham. The firm has also made a number of appointments in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Cunningham joins with more than ten years’ experience in consumer marketing research, having previously worked in operational, technology and client-service related roles at Digital Marketing Services (DMS), a market research firm co-founded by AOL and the M/A/R/C Group. He has a BA in Business, Economics and Computer Science from Austin College.
The new office has been established to service clients in Dallas and across Atlanta, and comes as Research Now’s online panel of active US consumers passes the half million mark (565,000 members).
Meanwhile, in New York, Lamont Lambert joins as VP of Client Development and Heather Upham as Client Development Executive. Lambert was most recently Director of Client Development at Insight Express where he was responsible for business development among CPG/FMCG manufacturers.
In Los Angeles
, Mauricio Vasquez joins as Client Development Manager with a focus on services for US-based Hispanic research companies.
Alexis Unzeitig joins as Client Development Executive in the company’s San Francisco
office. The firm says its ‘project management hub’ in the city is also being expanded with inter-company secondments from the London and Toronto offices, coupled with active local hiring, to support recent West Coast tracking project wins.
Research Now has proprietary online panels in 29 countries worldwide, with more than 2 million active panellists, and a US web site at www.researchnow-usa.com
The firm’s Founder and Group MD Andrew Cooper
will be stepping down at the end of October to start up a new business.
