Millward Brown Ramps Up Neuroscience Practice
Millward Brown has added five team members to its Neuroscience Research Practice, formed in March to extend the services offered by its existing advertising and brand research unit.
The practice was established by Graham Page, following six years of R&D into the application and benefits of applying neuroscience to marketing. In his global role as EVP of the Neuroscience Practice, Page is currently supported by Nikki Westoby, who holds a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience.
New members include:
‘It is fantastic that we have a group of individuals who are highly-qualified in both market research and neuroscience joining the practice,’ stated Page. ‘The core ethos of the team is to integrate neuroscience and established research tools, to equip Millward Brown to deliver that additional, relevant insight to clients globally.’
