People UK

UK— Research agency Skim is to open a new office in London in mid-January.

The Dutch firm, which is currently celebrating its 30th year in business, currently has offices in Rotterdam, New York and Geneva. It specialises in research services for the healthcare, consumer, telecom and finance sectors.

Chairman Dirk Huisman (pictured) said: “As our business and team are growing, we felt the need for further global expansion. We strive to do so without losing Skim’s personal and dedicated way of working. Being present in Hammersmith allows us to be close to UK-based clients and to better serve all our clients’ UK qualitative research needs.”

Skim said it chose London because it is “not just a global business centre but also a home base for many leading healthcare, consumer, telecom and financial companies”.
