North America People

US— Frank Forkin has left the post of president of client services for Harris Interactive in North America after little over nine months in the role.

Harris said the departure was by mutual agreement and was effective from 5 March, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

It is not known what Forkin’s future plans are and he could not be reached for comment at the time of publication. No other reason was given for the departure.

Forkin joined the online research specialist in June after five months as vice president of strategy and consumer insight for Domino’s Pizza. Before that he spent nearly five years with JD Power & Associates, latterly as a senior vice president and partner.

In January, Harris published its results for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 (the three months ended 31 December). Bookings in North America were reported to be up 9% year on year.
