UK — Andy Wardlaw has joined consumer insight agency MMR Research Worldwide in the new role of insight director, as the agency expands its team with ten other hires.


Wardlaw (pictured) has led research and insight work for clients including General Mills, Johnson & Johnson and Ella’s Kitchen and has been brought into MMR to increase client insight in the food, drink, personal and household care sectors.

Wardlaw said: “MMR’s mantra is to go ‘beyond the obvious’ and my new role is about delivering more value-added thinking. In a roving capacity, I’ll be knitting together all our knowledge and insight, both at a category and research approach perspective.”
