UK— Richard Abraham has been appointed head of the public sector, charities and transport industry sector team at Synovate.

The role has been vacant since the death of Nigel Jackson in a skiing accident last year.

Abraham (pictured) joins from ORC International where he was head of public sector research and previously had a seven-year spell as head of research, information and customer feedback at Southwark Council.

Synovate CEO Jill Telford said: “After searching for several months for the right person to head up our public sector team, we are delighted that Richard Abraham has joined us.

“He has a very good balance of people skills, customer focus, public sector experience and research professionalism. His initial focus will be on strengthening and building the best support and service to current clients. Going forward, he will be instrumental in growing the UK business.”
