Relish Research, with offices in London and Leeds, has promoted Richard Brown, head of its Leeds operation, to the position of research director.

Brown, together Louisa Carey-Brown, the company’s head of quantitative research, left Relish’s London office in 2011 to set up the new base in Leeds.

Last year the Leeds office moved into larger premises in the Round Foundry Media Centre and two further staff were recruited: Carol Finlayson and  Laura Webster.

Relish’s clients include L’Oreal, Vodafone, Virgin Media, Asda, EDF Energy and SCA Papers.

Senior partner of Relish, Monique Drummond said: “Richard has been with the company for four years and has gone from strength the strength. He’s been fundamental to establishing our Leeds office.

“Both he and Louisa are building a strong team and client list, including winning Asda and growing this to a significant account. This has made a major contribution to our solid growth over the past 18 months.”
