Added Senior-Level Research Strength at Ipsos Health

Continued Growth Propelling Ongoing Hiring Plan in the U.S.

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

New York, NY – Ipsos Health is set on a growth pattern. The group is announcing two senior level researchers - David Scowcroft as Senior Vice President and Susan Baxter as Vice President – have joined the ranks. This follows last month’s announcement of 10 newly hired research professionals, and the continued expansion of the team.

“David and Susan bring a combined three decades of marketing and research perspective to our team including extensive experience in both the client and consultancy settings. They will add tremendous value in terms of understanding business issues and using research to inform and shape strategic and tactical implementation” says Fred LaManna, Senior Vice President with Ipsos Health. “It is our goal at Ipsos Health to leverage insights that come from an integrated analysis of the multiple stakeholders who impact the success of bio-pharmaceutical brands. With experts like David and Susan on board, we will continue to deliver our promise.”

David Scowcroft’s responsibilities will encompass leading a team of research professionals and new product development. Scowcroft brings over 15 years of experience to the team, with ten of those years centered on healthcare research. Before joining Ipsos Health, he was a senior researcher at Sanofi and subsequently, he ran the quantitative business of a major market research firm.

Susan Baxter will focus primarily on providing client consultation and senior leadership to one of Ipsos’s research teams. Baxter brings extensive client-side research experience via her 15-year career in the Procter & Gamble organization, with a particular focus on the company’s healthcare and pharmaceutical divisions. Just prior to joining Ipsos, she was principal for an independent research consultancy.

In addition to these senior hires, there were 5 incremental hires in June including Jane Wilson who rejoins as a manager. Wilson had spent ten years at Ipsos previously. Newly arriving research associates include: Brittany Bare, Gina Maggi, Katherine Sharga and Andrew Zoller.
