After Vitreous World Robert went on to Cicero Group, a full service communications and market research agency, where he has served as Account Director and currently as Director. Mr. Agnew has a broad skillset and a vast network both in the MR industry and the wider communication and marketing environment. Robert will take on the reins before Christmas.
Commenting on the hiring of Mr. Agnew, Erling J. B. Eriksen, COO in Norstat, says: “I`m delighted that we have reached an agreement with Mr. Agnew. I have followed Robert since he departed from Norstat some years ago and have been deeply impressed both by him as a person and by his career development. I`m confident that this is good timing both parties. Robert has gained a lot of experience from the client side which will benefit us in the years ahead. I am certain that both our UK team, the Norstat Group as such and most importantly our clients will benefit greatly from his energy and competency. I very much look forward to once again having the pleasure of working together with someone as skilled and ambitious as Robert.”
Robert Agnew comments, “I am thrilled to return to Norstat as UK Managing Director. Having enjoyed tremendous development during my previous position within the organisation, the role presents a fantastic opportunity to combine my understanding of the Norstat operation and the client-side knowledge I have ascertained over recent years. The timing of my appointment could not be better as Norstat continues to exceed client expectations, capitalising on the organisation’s philosophy of building long-standing and trusted client relationships to fuel the development of new solutions for the marketplace. I am really looking forward to the road ahead, growing Norstat’s presence in the UK by continuing to work closely with our clients and partners to realise the full potential of the data we provide.”
