UK — J Walter Thompson (JWT) has launched a new research and analytics group, The Intelligence Group.


According to Campaign, the Intelligence Group brings together three existing specialities within JWT: Sonar, Analytics and The Innovation Group. The group will be led by Guy Murphy (pictured), JWT’s worldwide planning director.

Sonar investigates cultural trends through qual and quant research; Analytics uses data and tech to generate marketing ideas; and The Innovation Group helps clients look to the future.
