Discovery Research Limited is delighted to announce the promotion of Dani Verrall to Research Executive and Michael Webley to Associate Director.
Dani joined Discovery over a year ago as Graduate Trainee having obtained her BA at Cambridge and an MSc at Southampton. She has become a skilled qualitative and quantitative researcher. A valuable member of the team, she has worked across sectors including educational events, financial services, telecoms and FMCG, and on a wide range of research challenges including understanding kids and their media consumption. Dani has a particular interest in Behavioural Economics and research methodologies that encompass these principles.
Michael specialises in qualitative market research in FMCG, technology, finance and retail. Since joining Discovery as a graduate trainee seven years ago, he has embraced a range of methodologies, including online. Michael has developed into a dedicated, intelligent and creative researcher who relishes each new project. He has always taken a prominent role in the company’s charity activities, including the gruelling Three Peaks challenge.
Discovery Managing Director Trish Parker says,
“I am delighted to be recognising the contribution that both Dani and Michael make. It is even more pleasing that both started their careers with us and have dedicated themselves to learning - and excelling - in research. They are both evidence - if it were needed - of the value of hiring the brightest and the best, investing in them and offering as many opportunities for career development as possible. We look forward to continuing to see them flourish in their new roles.”
