Simpson Carpenter today announces that Mike Stevens, former Managing Director of TNS-Research International’s Business Services Division has joined the company as Director of Telecommunications Research.  

Stevens, who held a position on TNS-RI’s UK agency board, will have responsibility for overseeing Simpson Carpenter’s technology, media and telecoms (TMT) activities and strengthening the company’s position in this market.

The move is the first in a series of high level appointments that will see Simpson Carpenter adding a number of established industry figures to its senior team.

Whilst at TNS-RI Stevens oversaw financial services, travel and tourism and business-to-business research and also held the role of Global Account Director for Vodafone.  

A seasoned researcher, Stevens is well known as a leading figure in telecommunications research. He brings extensive experience of running complex multinational research programmes to Simpson Carpenter together with deep technology, media and telecoms expertise.  

Stevens brings more than 15 years research and management experience to the board at Simpson Carpenter.

He will lead a major push to consolidate and develop the company’s position in the TMT sector with significant growth targeted for 2010 and beyond.

Tom Simpson, Co-Founder and Managing Director of Simpson Carpenter said,
“Mike is extremely well-regarded by major clients in this sector and we are naturally delighted to be able to add such a big hitter to our executive team.  His unrivalled knowledge of TMT research and extensive contacts in the industry will be invaluable as we continue to grow our telecoms business.  

Stevens said

“Simpson Carpenter has long been admired for its work in the TMT sector and I am delighted to be joining such a distinguished team.  We have great ambitions for growth in 2010 and I am excited by the opportunity to help the company build on its existing strong portfolio of telecoms and media clients. Simpson Carpenter has a great mix of skills in both qualitative and quantitative research which I’m sure will have wide appeal to clients in the TMT sector.  I am relishing the chance to establish the company as the definitive research partner for TMT clients both in the UK and further afield.”
