As part of the combination between Ipsos and Synovate, Ipsos has reorganised its Ipsos Marketing specialisation – the largest of Ipsos’ global business lines, representing nearly half of Ipsos’ total revenues in 2011.


Ipsos Marketing remains under the global leadership of Pierre Le Manh, Chairman and CEO of Ipsos Marketing. Mr Le Manh is also Ipsos deputy CEO and Chairman of Ipsos ASI.


Ipsos Marketing is now organised through four practices:


Market Understanding and Measurement

This practice helps clients understand consumers, shoppers and markets, differentiate their brands, optimise their distribution and allocate their Marketing expenditures. For now it is managed directly by Pierre Le Manh and mainly operates under the Ipsos Marketing brand. It also includes new and highly specialised services such as: Ipsos Business Consulting, which advises clients on emerging markets penetration strategies; Ipsos Retail Performance, which provides technology to measure and analyse traffic in stores; and Ipsos MMA, a leader in Marketing Mix Modeling.


In India Ipsos Market Understanding and Measurement will be headed by Rajesh Nair, Executive Director, Ipsos in India.

“The combination with Synovate has been a terrific opportunity to develop a new plan for Ipsos Marketing,” explains Pierre Le Manh. “We are further specialising our teams so that our clients can have access to professionals who can truly help them understand how to improve their business”.
