The purpose of the newly created role is to increase the company’s international footprint and drive new business relationships across Southeast Asia and Australia.

Clarke (pictured) has more than 20 years’ commercial experience in market research businesses. Previously, he worked as client services director of media at Nielsen Sports and was a client director at Ipsos.

“He joins a growing team that has doubled in size over the last year to support a business growth of 35% in the APAC region.

The newly created role will allow On Device Research further exposure across key territories where our research products can continue to offer clients innovative and technically advanced solutions in the media research space.”
