US— Online fieldwork supplier Research Now has made several changes to its senior management team, including giving UK managing director Martin Filz the new role of managing director for EMEA and Asia Pacific.

Current Asia Pacific MD James Burge will remain in place, reporting to Filz from Research Now’s offices in Sydney, Australia.

Craig Stevens, who had previously been responsible for the EMEA region as VP of global client development, has been promoted to the new role of chief revenue officer as part of the reshuffle. He will be responsible for overseeing marketing functions in the Americas and will also manage the business analytics function.

Filz, who headed the Asia Pacific region before taking charge of the UK, will assume responsibility for client development activities and oversee client development leadership teams across both regions.

Research Now CEO Kurt Knapton said: “Martin has played an integral role in expanding the APAC business into China, Japan and India, and was responsible for growing the company’s business in the UK considerably in the past year. For these very reasons, I am confident in his capability and determination to successfully lead our international team across both EMEA and APAC, while more closely aligning our marketing and client development efforts locally.”

Lastly, Konstanze Just has been promoted to SVP of global marketing. She joined the firm in 2009 and served most recently as VP of global marketing.
