New senior hires to cope with demand & lead future growth
SKOPOS market insight, the pioneering market research, insight & consulting group has doubled global sales (across UK, Europe and South Africa) since 2006 - to around £5 million - with profit doubling in this period too.
This rapid organic growth has been driven by cross-sector solutions and applications, including Multi-Channel and Digital Media, plus acceptance to a number of multi–year approved rosters for clients such including Royal Mail, O2, Yahoo! and Daimler Chrysler.
Subsequently, to cope with demand, ensure high quality, and to drive future growth, SKOPOS has expanded its workforce and recently appointed two new senior staff to its Research & Insight team in the UK.
With extensive experience in the research industry, Scott Dodgson joins SKOPOS as Research & Insight Director. Scott climbs on board after 6 years with Cambridge Market Research (and before that at Step Ahead Research), where he was instrumental in building the business, establishing a portfolio of blue chip clients including McDonalds and Onken. Scott brings his considerable rounded experience of the FMCG/Consumer & B2B to the team.
“I am really looking forward to joining the SKOPOS team, and being part of an energised, growing, international business. In this new role, I am keen to further my digital expertise, fully exploring its capabilities, and how it can be used, alongside more traditional off-line techniques, to support clients’ research needs.”
Also new to the research team is Anna Galica, who joins SKOPOS as Research Manager. With a Masters Degree in Economics, Anna was most recently employed by GfK Business & Technology, where she managed high-intensity International projects. Anna joined SKOPOS in August and has taken responsibility for the project management of some of SKOPOS’ major clients.
“I very much look forward to joining the team at SKOPOS and adding my skills to their existing professionalism. This is an opportunity for me to further my research knowledge and work with the team on developing the business.”
Darren-Mark Noyce, Founder and Managing Director of SKOPOS MI&C Ltd. says:
"To match our growth and long term strategy i.e. maximising client insight and innovation, we are delighted to hire both Scott and Anna who bring with them an abundance of knowledge and know-how in the FMCG, B2B and Technology sectors. Their hands-on experience, expertise and engagement amongst a wide variety of blue chip clients will make a huge difference to SKOPOS and their input will help optimise and advance our current and future research and insight offering.”
