Ron Halverson, President and Founder of Halverson Group, has announced the expansion of the company’s leadership team with the hiring of Brad Bane, former US COO of Ipsos Marketing, as a Managing Director. As a member of the Halverson Group executive team, Brad is charged with growing and deepening client relationships and providing leadership on matters affecting the whole firm including strategy, solution design, process efficiency, and thought leadership.
“We’re excited to have Brad join us as a business catalyst and thought leader,” said Halverson. “I’m confident that in combining the intellectual capital of Halverson Group and Brad’s experiences we increase our ability to guide our clients in terms of where to play and how to win, utilizing new methods for transforming consumer insights into actionable business strategies.”
Bane has over 20 years of marketing research experience, working with a diverse base including consumer packaged goods companies, retailers, technology-related businesses, and the healthcare industry. In his most recent position as US Chief Operating Officer for Ipsos Marketing, Ipsos’ innovation and branding specialization, his role focused on helping the organization and its clients deliver with distinction – leveraging research to be meaningfully better than competition. A frequent conference contributor, in 2015 he spoke at the IIeX Behavioral Marketing Forum (BMF), the Technology Market Analysis Group (TMAG) Conference, and the Market Research in the Mobile World (MRMW) Conference.
