Ipsos announces Carin Hercock’s appointment as managing director of Ipsos New Zealand.
Ms Hercock brings nearly 30 years’ experience in the research and marketing industry to her new role, most recently at Nielsen New Zealand, where she spent more than four years as executive director of customer insights. Prior to Nielsen, Ms Hercock worked at APN News Zealand (now NZME) and major FMCG manufacturers.
She will lead Ipsos’ Wellington and Auckland offices, driving strategy, managing senior-level client relationships, and building the Ipsos brand in New Zealand. She reports to Ipsos Australia and New Zealand chief executive Simon Wake.
Mr Wake says “Carin is the ideal leader for our New Zealand team, with a stellar track record on both the client and agency side of our industry.
“Few marketing and research executives can rival Carin’s experience, which spans finance to FMCGs, retail to real estate, and manufacturing to media. Carin’s extensive relationships and strong industry networks are a tremendous asset as we progress Ipsos’ determined expansion in the New Zealand market.”
Commenting on her appointment, Ms Hercock says “It’s exciting to work with an organisation that’s as passionate about people and insights as I am. The breadth and depth of Ipsos’ research knowledge, experience and innovation is impressive, and I see limitless potential as we recruit additional talent and build the Ipsos brand in New Zealand.
“I’m looking forward to tapping into Ipsos’ global strengths and network and working with our highly talented research team to benefit our clients and grow the business.”
Ms Hercock’s appointment is effective immediately.
