Away from the office

When not at work or driving the length and breadth of the country, he can be found walking around the UK, from Cornwall to the Lake District fells with his wife Wendy, playing golf or watching films.

Tony likes to remain active, and later this year he will be taking part in a 24 Peaks in 24 hours – a walking challenge covering some of the highest mountains and fells in the lake district.

Recent Interview with Tony

Emily Riley, our Digital Marketing Executive recently sat down with Tony over a cup of coffee to better understand what makes him tick. The first question she asked was "What attracted you to a career in Market Research?"

"I like to think that I fell into research because I knew how to use a computer at a time they were the size of a cupboard. But in all honesty, it was probably decided much earlier time when I used to go along and watch my mum conduct interviews and help organize research studies 10-15 years earlier… Thanks Mum!"
