UK – Market research and data analytics group YouGov has made Alex McIntosh its chief financial officer and a member of the board.


McIntosh (pictured) has been at YouGov since 2007, initially as corporate finance manager before being promoted to the group’s chief strategy officer in 2011. He was UK CEO between 2015 and 2016.

In other changes, chief operating officer, Sundip Chahal, will also join the board. He has been with the company since 2005 and has held roles including managing director of data products and CEO of the MENA business, during his time there.

This announcement follows the news in October that its previous CFO, Alan Newman, was leaving the company and stepping down from the board. Chief scientist, Doug Rivers, is also standing down from the board but staying at YouGov with an expanded role of managing its global technology development teams.
