Northumberland-based insights firm DRG has confirmed the appointment of Paul Wealleans as Managing Director of its online research supplier Panelbase.
Panelbase offers access to a community of more than 300,000 UK adults and more than 50,000 under-16s. Services include online sample, omnibus, recruitment for online qual, in-home product testing, scripting / hosting, data tabulation, and bespoke survey tool development.
Wealleans (pictured) became Panelbase Project Manager in 2014, after roles in the newspaper industry: first at Northeast Press, where he latterly served as Divisional IT Manager, and then at The Scotsman as Director of Group Services; followed by a stint as Customer Service Associate at outsourcing company 2Touch. In April, he was named leader of Panelbase after the sudden death of founder Angus Webb.
Commenting on the appointment, John Raglan, Chairman and co-founder of DRG, said: 'Since taking over at Panelbase in tragic circumstances, Paul has demonstrated his leadership qualities, skill and dedication to stakeholders inside and outside the company. Panelbase performance has held its ground - a tremendous result in an uncertain trading environment that is down to Paul and the rest of the Panelbase team. Paul is continuing the vision, culture and service ethic that has helped Panelbase get where it is today, and we are all excited for the future'.
