TOKYO, JAPAN - 20 June 2022 - Leading online research solution platform GMO Research is expanding its services to North America by opening a subsidiary branch in New York City.

Pratik Sharma, the Executive Vice President for the US and EU region, had this to say regarding GMO Research’s new expansion: “Our industry has gone through a transformation within the last two years, and GMO has adapted to that change. One of the investments made by GMO Research is to be with our clients locally on a partnership basis, and we now have a branch of GMO Research headquartered in NYC.

“GMO will be a global partner for our existing and new customers. We are close to you when you need us.”

Originally based in Japan, GMO Research has risen to become the leading platform in APAC, providing access to more than 46 million online panellists, from consumers to CEOs.
