Gary has worked in the Market Research business since the early 90s and is an experienced survey methodologist and applied statistician. Originally a budget holder for Transport for London’s biggest travel surveys, he subsequently held senior positions in a number of leading agencies including Findlay Publications, MORI and RS Consulting, overseeing the setting up of some of the earliest online survey panels in the late 1990s.
In 2004 he set up Logit Research, a statistical consultancy focusing on the Market Research business and transitioned his growing team of analysts to The Stats People in 2016.
Gary has a BSc (Hons) in Mathematics and Statistics (University of Leeds), an MBA (University of Hull) and completed the MRS Professional Development Scheme to become a full MRS member. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Statistical Society. Gary’s analytical and Market Research background gives him a strong theoretical understanding, but with a strong pragmatic and common sense approach.
A regularly speaker at seminars and conferences, Gary is as motivated about statistical education as he is about delighting his clients and their clients. He is a trusted advisor on and reviewer of survey methodology as well as an experienced data modeller and dependable communicator. He is the UK business partner of Statistical Innovations Inc in the US, and is co-developer of the CORExpress ® software for predictive modelling.
