It’s from this foundation I’m delighted to welcome Glenn. His experience scaling commercial operations in tech and data businesses globally sets us up perfectly for the next step of our growth journey.”

Commenting on his appointment, Glenn said: “It’s clear to me how highly engaged and focused on customer outcomes the Vypr team is. I’m excited by the company’s current investment in technology, including its adoption of AI, which will enable material value to new and existing clients. Our planned roadmap of expansion is driven by customer relationships and strong demand to bring the same fast, cost-effective consumer insight available in the UK, France and Germany to further international markets.”
