London-based research community and panel firm Verve has expanded its qual team with three specialist senior hires - Richie Jones, Tim Martin and Lisa Chautard, bolstering both its digital and face to face skills base.
Earlier in the year, verve recruited Sali Turner as Director of Qualitative Research, and as recently as September, it announced six appointments including the return of Ana Garcia to lead a new in-house recruitment drive as Associate Director of Team.
Jones joins from Tuned In where he was Digital Communities Director, and worked previously at FreshMinds for eight years. His remit includes expansion of the company's digital qualitative offering.
Martin and Chautard both become Associate Directors. Martin joins from Ipsos MORI, and will be working on a key Verve account; while face-to-face qual specialist Chautard has spent four years at specialist qualitative agency Spring, and was previously at Sorgem in Paris.
Andrew Cooper, Verve CEO, comments: 'As specialists in using Community Panels for research we are investing in providing a one stop shop of research specialism to make Community Panels sing, dance and really perform for our clients and their stakeholders. Richie, Tim and Lisa bring not only strong experience, but also creative and ambitious minds to help us challenge and develop the way in which qualitative Community Panel research is undertaken.'
