UK consumer and MR consultancy Incite has relocated Principals Jenni Forbes and John Tearle from its London HQ to its office in San Francisco. The firm has also hired Caroline Aulis in its New York office, which will move to larger premises by the end of the first quarter.
Founded in 2000, Incite was acquired by printing group St Ives in 2012, in a deal worth up to £11.4m. The firm is based in London, with additional offices in Shanghai, Singapore, New York, and San Francisco.
Forbes and Tearle transfer to the west coast team, after working for the company in London since 2011. They join MD Kevin Waters and Director Joanna Matsis, who have both worked for the firm since 2015. Waters' career has included senior roles at TNS and Ipsos, and serving as President and CEO of the National Food Laboratory; while Matsis worked for TNS for more than a decade, latterly as VP, Research Management, before which she worked at Nielsen for four years.
Aulis joins as an Associate in New York, after working for WPP's public opinion and electoral polling specialist Penn Schoen Berland as a Project Manager. To accommodate expansion, the New York office will be relocating to Park Avenue before the end of March.
US MD Kevin Kruper comments: 'Our ambition since 2013 was to bring a unique and effective way of working to the 'States. Local clients have embraced our support of their business needs, and we are proud of the great clients that trust us in partnership'.
