To lead the efforts in India, GMO Research/JMI has appointed 10-year industry veteran Anupam Kaul, formerly the leading force in developing the India operations center of Global Market Insite, Inc. (GMI) and Greenfield Online Pvt. Ltd. (currently Toluna Group Ltd).

Anupam says, “I am very impressed with GMO Research/JMI and I look forward to working to with them to expand their presence outside of Japan, and become a global player in the industry.”

GMO Research/JMI CEO Shinichi Hosokawa stated, “We are extremely excited to start up our India operations center, and Anupam, with his rich experience, will make this a reality.”
