"We are bringing together some of the industry's most trusted brands under one umbrella, allowing us to serve our global customer base with the best selection of reports, platforms, and custom services."
The acquisition provides businesses, nonprofit organizations, and academia a single source of authoritative market research stretching across multiple industries, from consumer goods and services to life sciences, construction and materials to chemicals and packaging. MarketResearch.com and Freedonia's products can be found in the offices of more than 90% of Fortune 1000 companies worldwide and in the libraries of top business schools and universities.
The Freedonia business unit will be led by Jeff Weiss, CEO of The Freedonia Group since 1997, reporting to Mr. Granader and supported by both the Freedonia content team and MarketResearch.com sales and marketing management.
