UK – Insights company BMG Research has appointed Caroline Turley as client leadership director.


Turley was previously at the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen), where she spent a decade leading the organisation’s crime and justice team.

In addition, Turley has expertise in qualitative research and evaluation with groups such as prisoners, victims/survivors of crime, young people at risk of harm, and on wider topics such as bereavement and mental health.

At BMG, Turley will help to expand the business’ qualitative portfolio into new policy areas as well as leading on client relationships.

“We’ve seen the business grow dramatically in the past couple of years and it has given us the platform to bring in people of the highest calibre and expand our offer and capabilities. We can’t wait to work closely with Caroline and see that continue.
