Today, she participates in every aspect of the company’s work, from research design to interviewing to developing new information-delivery techniques.
“I’m delighted to join my father in continuing the Epley Research & Consulting legacy of conducting thorough research and unparalleled levels of analysis to provide solutions to clients’ most vexing problems,” said Rachel Epley.
Rachel’s arrival also adds leadership expertise to the firm.
