Research Now Hires Nielsen Veteran Doug Pierce
In Chicago, digital data collection provider Research Now has appointed Nielsen veteran Doug Pierce as Senior Vice President of Client Development.
Pierce (pictured) joins with more than 30 years' industry experience, including 27 spent at Nielsen, where he held senior operations, client services, business development, sales and executive management roles. More recently, he was Chief Learning Officer at machine tool manufacturer DMG MORI - USA, prior to which he spent a year as SVP Sales and Marketing at Datamonitor.
