We’re thrilled to have the assistance of these leaders as we sponsor new initiatives to help our members grow globally.”

"These are exciting times for the market research industry, presenting challenges and incredible opportunities we haven't faced before,” Manocha said. “As the speed of business decision making accelerates and insights become that much more important, the Insights Association –the vanguard for our industry – plays an increasingly vital role. My focus will be on growing the organization internationally, highlighting the valuable resources, knowledge and networking available to help organizations navigate through this rapidly changing environment."

The Insights Association’s International Chapter was formed in July 2017 to provide enhanced service and support for member companies and individual members operating outside of the United States. It is the Association’s 12th chapter and first outside the U.S. Currently members in the International Chapter are based in 23 countries.

The International Chapter has played a key role in producing the CEO Summit Europe, September 26-28 in London. Produced in partnership with the Market Research Society (MRS), it is the first Insights Association event outside the U.S.
