MMR Research Associates is continuing its growth trend with the addition of Cat Payne as Senior Director, Client Services.

Payne spent 22 years at Capital One, where she was the organization’s first research employee. After leaving Capital One, Payne enrolled at Michigan State University’s MSMR program, and she earned her degree last year.

When she’s not working hard on behalf of MMR’s clients, one of her favorite pastimes is crabbing on the banks of the Rappahannock River at an old family farmhouse in Virginia. She also likes to read, travel and go for walks. 

In 2019, MMR grew its team by nearly 20 percent. Payne joins as MMR celebrates its 20th anniversary.
