Europe News People

NORWAY — Norwegian data services company Norstat has hired Francesco Renga as country manager for its newly-opened Milan office.


Renga has more than 10 years’ experience in the research industry, both in Italy and in the UK. He has previously held positions at Millward Brown, GfK, Ales Research and Field Facts Worldwide.

For historical reasons, Norstat Italy has been a business unit of Norstat Germany but the company said Renga’s appointment marks the beginning of a separate Italian entity.

Erling Eriksen, COO of the Norstat Group said: “We have seen a steady growth in our Italian business over the past few years and we are now eager to invest even more resources into one of the biggest markets in Europe.”
