Illumination Research adds two to leadership team

North America People

US— Illumination Research has appointed Jennifer Holt (pictured) as director of marketing and new business development and Heather Smith as director of insight strategy.

Smith is returning to the agency in October after leaving briefly to work clientside for Procter & Gamble and JP Morgan Chase, while Holt joins from Marketing Research Services Inc (MRSI). Both will be based in the firm’s new headquarters in Mason, Ohio.

The new roles were created after the agency launched a new qualitative research facility in its headquarters last year and are part of a recruitment push that has seen Illumination double its in-office staff.
