The newly elected Managing Committee continues to stay committed to promoting, protecting, improving, and propagating the highest quality standards in all branches of market research, thereby establishing India as a dominant force in the global market research industry. For the next couple of years, MRSI aims to capitalize on its recent successes while fostering a more collaborative network for its members, resulting in effective knowledge and resource sharing. Additionally, MRSI will continue to develop the next generation of market research professionals and instill a deep sense of pride in the impactful work being done by the Indian market research industry.

Congratulating the newly elected President, Paru Minocha, Managing Director, South Asia, Insights Division, Kantar, and outgoing President of the Market Research Society of India, said, “I am grateful for the unwavering trust MRSI members placed in the current Managing Committee. Key initiatives like the launch of the Socio-economic Classification System, ‘ISEC’, and the Market Sizing Report for FY 2022–23 have given a new direction and scale to the vision of the association going forward. As I pass on the baton, I wish the incoming Managing Committee under the leadership of Nitin Kamat all the best.”

Soon after its inception, the former Managing Committee adopted the strategy of focusing on three broad pillars: building profile, building pride, and building network and reach. The committee was responsible for the successful implementation and adoption of the new socio-economic classification system, ‘ISEC’. Among the various industry stakeholders that adopted ISEC are the Indian Society of Advertisers (ISA), research users of various organizations such as ITC, HUL, Marico, Dabur India, etc., research agencies including Kantar and IPSOS, as well as key media agencies.

My focus will be to engage new minds and not only maintain existing standards but also implement a new set of ideas and initiatives. In addition to building MRSI’s 3 Pillars—Profile, Pride, and Network—I firmly believe that ‘Building Trust’ is another crucial pillar that we will work upon. I look forward to strengthening global connections, deepening government connections, and driving more initiatives for active participation from regional players. I am confident of achieving these goals along with the newly elected managing committee members.”
