Toronto, ON – As part of a continued effort to expand its qualitative research capabilities within the Canadian market, Ipsos has added two new executives to its team. Gayle Lunn joins as a Vice President with Ipsos UU and Christian Arambulo joins as a Director with Ipsos UU. The announcement was made by Gary Bennewies, CEO and President of Ipsos in Canada.
“The methods we use to uncover consumer insights are changing, and that’s especially true for qualitative research,” notes Bennewies. “The confluence of new technologies such as mobile and digital have both expanded and enhanced our offering. But one thing remains the same – delivering the best to clients requires having talented people. This powerful duo has the expertise to help our clients achieve new levels of success.”
Gayle Lunn brings over 15 years of experience in building brands to her new role. As a Vice President with Ipsos UU, she will be responsible for spearheading qualitative research solutions for clients across a range of categories. In addition, she will be focused on enhancing the capabilities of Ipsos UU, drawing on her depth of experience in strategic consultation, digital delivery, and segment expertise with teens and Millennials. Lunn joins Ipsos from Rethink Communications, where she worked for two years as Director of Strategy. She also held senior roles at Dashboard Communications and Aliant Mobility/Bell Atlantic, and started her career with organizations such as Youthography, Kids Help Phone and Cossette.
A seasoned market researcher, Christian Arambulo brings deep experience in managing and executing strategic research projects. Since 2009, he has held several roles at ABM Research, most recently as an Associate Vice President. While there, he ran large global research studies and effectively managed teams. In his new post, he will work with clients to consult, design and execute qualitative research projects.
“Having Gayle and Christian join Ipsos underscores our commitment to building the strongest qualitative team in the region. I look forward to watching their success as they work to write this new chapter in market research,” adds Bennewies.
