New Managng Director for Leading Market Research Company IPSOS NZ

Market research company Ipsos is pleased to announce the appointment of Diane Dickinson as new Managing Director for its New Zealand operations.

Currently the National Research Director, Diane will be replacing current Managing Director Ian Mills from 1st September, as Ian departs to a new GM role with Data Insights Ltd.

About Diane

Diane has been with the company since 1994 when it was Research Solutions, working her way up to her current appointment through proving herself time and again to be one of the country’s best all-round researchers and account managers.

Her strong client management and research skills have been repeatedly recognised by her peers through the Market Research Effectiveness Awards, most recently when she won the ‘2012 Effective Partnership Award’ for her ongoing work for AMI Insurance after the Christchurch earthquakes.

Diane says “This is a fantastic opportunity and an exciting one too. I am looking forward to working with our team at Ipsos NZ to take a fresh look at developments in the industry, ensuring that we adapt and develop in ways that the market demands. We have a unique team of exceptionally talented researchers and support staff at all levels in the business and I want to use this opportunity to ensure that everyone in the company is also developing, for their own satisfaction as well as for our clients, who are of course the ultimate judges of our performance.”

Outgoing Managing Director Ian Mills states that “I will be sad in leaving the company, but also very happy to see Diane taking over. In handing over the reins to Diane, who I have worked with for 12 years, I have the utmost confidence that the company will keep going from strength to strength.”

About Ipsos

Ipsos is one of the largest research companies in New Zealand with clients such as EECA, the NZ Defence Force, ASB Bank, Trustpower and IAG. Ipsos has won more NZ Market Research Effectiveness Awards than any other company.
