UK — Joerg Schymczyk, director of new business at RONIN, has died at the age of 47.  

Before joining RONIN at the beginning of 2016 as director of new business, Joerg had a long and successful career in market research.

Working with Ipsos, Ugam, Panelbase and GN research, Joerg started in the industry as an interviewer and worked his way through to managing director.

David Burdon, CATI director at RONIN said: "Working with Joerg was always a pleasure, with his calm attitude to any problems balanced by his great sense of humour, he was one of the most respected and valued members of our team. He was an asset to the MR industry and will be truly missed."

Simon Glanville, MD GDCC UK added: "I knew and worked with Joerg for almost 15 years and was a colleague at two companies. Joerg was universally liked and respected in the industry and was a regular face that many people enjoyed seeing at industry events. Joerg became a very good friend who I will miss greatly. It is such a sudden and unexpected loss. My deepest sympathies are with his wife Elena and children, May, Luke, Katya and Max."

Joerg passed away suddenly at home on Wednesday 6th July. He is survived by wife Elena and children May, Luke, Katya and Max. He will be cremated at 11.30am on Friday July 22 at the West Chapel of Croydon Crematorium at Mitcham Road, Croydon, CR9 1AT.
