People UK

UK— JRA Research has reshuffled its senior ranks, promoting Matt Coggan and Andy Grout to joint managing partners, with former MD Paul Summers moving up to chairman.

Coggan and Grout (pictured) both joined the company in 2009 – Coggan following stints at The Cog and Nunwood and Grout from MMR Research Worldwide.

Grout said: “Matt and I are both passionate about research and we don’t want to become out-of-touch leaders. A shared leadership role allows us to continue to work on a day-to-day basis with clients at the same time as focusing on the company’s strategy and future opportunities.”

The duo join Summers and UK research director Terry Wagstaff on the company board.
