Maru/Blue Adds Four to Executive Team
In Canada, respondent access specialist Maru/Blue has expanded its executive team, promoting Bouavanh Chatooria and Katie Gawlik to SVP roles and adding existing SVPs Kasia Galka and Cornelia Haack.
The business, which was launched in 2018, provides access to 'deeply engaged, well-curated respondents' through communities. These include Maru Voice Canada (formerly operating as the Angus Reid Forum), Maru Voice Business Canada, Springboard America, and Maru Voice UK, as well as the Maru Voice UK Omnibus.
Chatooria has been promoted to SVP, Quotations Service Bureau, having joined (then Vision Critical) in 2010 as Quotations Manager after four years at Greenfield Online. Gawlik is now SVP, Strategy & Development, after joining in 2018 following roles at NEWAD, Thomson Reuters, and Strategic Outdoor. The pair join the executive team alongside Galka, SVP Operations, who has been at the firm since last October following more than a decade at Toluna; and Haack, who joined in 2019 as SVP, Panels & Communities.
Maru Group CEO Ged Parton comments: 'I am confident our new executive leaders will bring a wealth of knowledge to the team. Together, the team has a highly extensive background in market research, operations, and business development which will be essential in propelling our brand forward.'
