MRS NAMES RESEARCH HEROES
MRS NAMES RESEARCH HEROES
The Market Research Society has published its first set of 25 Research Heroes as part of a year-long programme to spotlight individuals in the research sector.
The list includes individuals working in both client-side and supplier-side roles, spanning various functions, from operations to account management to those working in leadership positions.
Jane Frost, chief executive, Market Research Society, said: “On our 75th anniversary, it’s only right that we celebrate the great work done by so many of the unsung heroes of the sector.
“They demonstrate the breadth of research and everyone deserves to be celebrated.”
The 25 Research Heroes are:
Raluca Elena Barbu
Following a call for nominations from the industry, the final 25 were decided from the list by a panel of judges including Unilever’s Gemma Bumpsteed, HSBC’s Lucy Watts, Kenny Imafidon of ClearView Research, MRS chief executive Jane Frost and Katie McQuater, editor of Research Live and Impact.
Research Heroes is an ongoing programme throughout 2021, with a second tranche of Heroes to be published in October. Nominations are now open for the autumn list.
To be considered for the list, individuals must work in research, insight or analytics (including support and operations) and have done one or more of the following:
- Contributed during the past year to make a difference in the sector or to support colleagues or the community
- Given consistent service for which they cannot be recognised with a professional award, e.g. a fellowship
- Have forwarded the cause of research, or causes such as quality, diversity and sustainability.
