UK— Mike Everett is to take on the role of global HR director for Ipsos, moving up from CEO of Ipsos Mori, the group’s UK business.

Everett joined Mori in 1996 and has been a senior manager in the company for the last decade. He played a key role in the merger of Ipsos and Mori, following Ipsos’s £88m acquisition of the company in 2005.  

He was also involved in two earlier management buy-outs of the Mori business.

Commenting on his new post, Everett said: “How we manage our people and talent within Ipsos is a fundamental part of our business strategy and success. We have now decided that this function should be run by one of our senior general managers.  I am delighted to take up this role and am looking forward to helping the organisation and its people become as effective as possible.”

Ben Page was named CEO of Ipsos Mori in the UK and Ireland last month.
