Regarding our Oslo Office and Arild

I have had the pleasure of both working in Norway and working together with Arild in his previous position, and look forward to seeing him service our growing number of Norwegian clients and partners. The Norwegian market is home to many leading companies and highly skilled professionals, and I believe Arild’s 20 years of market research industry experience will help us learn best practices for the Norwegian market. With Arild at the helm, I am sure we can create a high level of satisfaction for our technology and modern consumer data solutions amongst our Norwegian clients and partners.

About Arild Saele

Arild, with more than two decades in the MR industry, brings to the table considerable experience in data collection and research. Coming from a Senior Account Manager position at Ipsos, he knows how important quality solutions and services are to clients with analysis expertise.

In a business world seemingly moving faster and faster, decisions based on fresh and correct data are more important than ever. I am excited to bring the flexible consumer data services of Syno to the Norwegian market. From a personal point of view, it is interesting to work at a young and energetic international company, where I hope to make use of the combination of that energy and the knowledge I have from my long career in the industry.

Regarding Vivish Joining as a Partner Consultant

I am so happy to welcome Vivish to the team for a number of reasons. First, given the potential size of the South Asia market, its essential to include the region in our 1-10 growth strategy for the APAC region. Second, I strongly believe that locals know local needs best, and Vivish’s in-depth experience and forward-looking vision for both marketing research and technology systems make him the best person to introduce our company to India. This is especially true when it comes to the digital transformation of data collection, processing, and reporting in the realms of marketing research, CX, and digital marketing.
