Forbes Consulting Group today announced that company Principal Dr. Jeremy Pincus was honored with the coveted Marketing Researcher of the Year Award by the Pharmaceutical Marketing Research Group (PMRG) at the institute’s Fifth Annual Meeting being held this week in Jersey City, New Jersey. Pincus was presented with the award during the Awards’ Ceremony and Dinner Monday evening. Recipients must demonstrate leadership, business impact, research innovation and commitment to healthcare market research to be considered for the award.
Dr. Pincus has spent much of the past year working with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, advising them on the use of market segmentation in order to improve awareness and education programs. He also oversaw the implementation of segmentation algorithms into both qualitative and quantitative research, and demonstrated the value of reporting results by segment. Pincus has also served as an advisor on segmentation and segment-based communication to the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE) and the Federal Office of Personnel Management, and has presented segmentation results to three Congressional committees.
“I am very honored to be selected as the recipient of this year’s award,” said Dr. Jeremy Pincus, Principal and Quantitative Leader of Forbes Consulting Group. “I am also proud to be the first vendor-side researcher that PMRG has chosen to receive this accolade.”
Each Fall, PMRG honors those who have made considerable contributions to the Pharmaceutical Marketing Research Community through his/her involvement with PMRG. The award was created in 2008 to recognize an individual who has demonstrated a positive and meaningful impact on Healthcare Market Research. The PMRG Executive Committee votes on the recipient.
