VIETNAM— Synovate has opened an office in Ho Chi Minh City, with Rodolphe Jounot appointed managing director of Vietnamese operations.

Jounot joins the firm from Indochina Research where he was a research director. He has also held research positions with Sony Ericsson, PepsiCo and the French wine and spirits company Onivins.

Jounot said: “Synovate has actually been doing business in Vietnam for more than a decade. This means we are already well established, and seen as a credible and trusted market research firm, but now we have a physical location here as well.”
