Laurent Flores - Candidate for ESOMAR President

“To Give Back to the Industry, Expand the Value Perception and Impact of Market Research”. With a unique mix of international business management, academic experience and successful entrepreneurship, actor of the MR industry for over twenty years in different geographies, I have witnessed and participated in a massive turn around of the industry ranging from globalization to consolidation and to “technologisation”. Interestingly, although a lot has been accomplished over these years, it seems that the biggest challenge is ahead of us, that of enlarging and strengthening higher value and an improved perception of the MR Industry for clients and the [...]

Phil Rance - Candidate for ESOMAR Council

I first joined ESOMAR for the Montreal Congress in 2008, and since then have been an enthusiastic participant in ESOMAR conferences, and increasingly involved with ESOMAR.

In particular, I value the opportunities to meet other research industry professionals from over 100 countries, and the dynamism that comes from this international network. I have been in research since joining [...]

My role at Decipher is to drive the development of our products and services globally, as well as stay on the forefront of new technologies, and I hope to bring that same diligence and passion for new research [...]

Patricio Pagani - Candidate for ESOMAR Council

I believe it is time for our industry to grow its circle of contacts. And to grow them exponentially. We are good at learning, so let us apply our probing skills and learn what others have to offer. Let us not be shy, and talk openly about what we have to offer to society. As some of you would know, I’ve been collaborating actively in the Market Research Industry for the last 14 years. I’m a feverish industry advocate and news curator. In the coming days, the ESOMAR council will elect their representatives and I believe I could make a [...]

Joaquim Bretcha - Candidate for ESOMAR Council

The Consumer understanding has been the engine of my 19 years of working experience. The consumer has been the focus in all the different roles I have developed all along the Value Chain in the MR Industry: End Client, Agency and Service Provider. I strongly believe that ESOMAR has to properly represent all the Market Research Value Chain. Indeed, in the current period in which the technology brings new players on the stage. We all have to be aware of the importance of building a strong community, formed by a huge diversity of actors, with solid principles and consistent methodologies [...]

Don Marek - Candidate for ESOMAR Council

On September 30th, I am retiring as Executive Director of the Marketing Research Institute International (MRII) after 9-years. MRII, which I helped co-found in 1996, has educated more than 7,000 students from 98 counties in its 18-year existence. Reg Baker, former President of Market Strategies International, will be my replacement. I am running for the ESOMAR Council this year because my MRII retirement will give me more free time to devote to things I like. AND, what I really like is giving back to society and our industry through associations and societies. Please make me one of the top choices [...]
