UK— Lightspeed Research has appointed Andrew Cayton as CEO for EMEA, replacing David Day who became global chief executive earlier this year.

Cayton joined Lightspeed in 2003 and was most recently global sales operations director, as well as heading up business development in the EMEA region and serving as director of the firm’s research board.

Former European CEO David Day moved up to the role of global chief executive following Anne Hedde’s departure to join Ipsos ASI.

Cayton said: “This is a particularly exciting time to be part of Lightspeed Research. With the recent merger of the TNS 6th Dimension panel business into Lightspeed Research, we are now in a position to build the pre-eminent global online access panel business.”
