Ugam Strengthens Business Development and Services Team to Address Growing Demand for Managed Analytics in North America

Industry Veterans Join Ugam, Reinforcing the Company’s Reputation for Delivering Superior Operations Expertise and High-Quality Customer Service

NEW YORK, January 20, 2015 – Ugam, a global leader in managed analytics, today announced the addition of three senior members to its business development and services team. Industry veterans Robert Clark, Angela Park and Sau Lam bring years of market research industry knowledge and deep domain expertise to Ugam, strengthening the company’s commitment to delivering unrivaled process- and technology-led research operations solutions for market research firms.

Clark joins Ugam as a business strategy consultant, Park as a sales director and Lam as a client director. All three will work closely with Ugam’s leadership team and clients to deliver high-quality managed market research services – from consulting and strategic support through data collection and reporting. All three possess strong quantitative and qualitative analysis skills, as well as project management and excellent client relationship skills, and together bring more than 30 years of experience to Ugam.

Prior to joining Ugam, Clark served as senior vice president of insights and consulting at Nielsen, where he led research and consulting projects from inception through the delivery of insights and recommendations, and the implementation of those recommendations by clients. He previously held senior research roles at Harris Interactive, Lieberman Research Worldwide and ORC International. He has a B.S. in Marketing from Montclair State University and an M.B.A. from Rider University.

Angela Park previously served as director of business development at All Global, and director of sales and marketing at GfK, where she specialized in research field services. She has a B.S. in Psychology from Carleton University.

Sau Lam joined Ugam from Xoriant, where she served as a client success manager. Previously, she worked as a senior analyst and project manager at AMI-Partners. She has a B.S. in Finance and Economics from New York University.

“Robert, Angela and Sau bring years of market research industry-specific experience to Ugam,” said Madhav Mirani, Ugam’s chief marketing officer. “They understand the needs of the marketplace and know how to build, sustain and grow market research relationships, and deliver superior results to clients. All three will be great assets to our team.”

As global research firms increasingly focus on providing insights to their clients, they are challenged with running complex, large-scale data collection and analysis operations. At the same time, the industry is facing consolidation and emerging technology challenges. Ugam alleviates all of these problems by providing research operations solutions backed by deep operational knowledge, freeing clients from operations headaches to focus on delivering value to their own clients.
