Future Publishing has appointed Simon Wainwright to the newly-created role of Market Research Director.
Previously T-Mobile’s Head of Future Propositions, Wainwright has more than 15 years’ experience in developing market research strategies.
He spent four years at T-Mobile, following five years with Tesco, where he rose to head up insight and marketing planning for the retailer’s home entertainment category.
Wainwright will be responsible for building the UK-based Market Research unit, developing audience and retail insights.
"I’m enormously excited by the potential of this role as it blends my passion for media, sport and technology with the need to deliver compelling insight stories on our customers and the market as a whole,” said Wainwright.
“I also think the role presents a great opportunity to develop our insight capabilities and to make it a key asset for Future as we expand our markets and our products."
