Appointment strengthens AGR'team

Market research franchise Ayton Global Research (AGR) has appointed Sharon Voisey to the post of Franchise Manager. Sharon (pictured, left, with AGR'founder Sue Ayton) brings a wealth of experience with blue chip companies having worked for BskyB, BT, NatWest, and Barclays.

Sharon will bring her specialist skills in providing top quality customer care and communication to managing and growing the AGR franchise network. 'The technology we use can be modified for any type of research and development purpose and the exciting challenge ahead of me is to franchise the product globally so we can continue our rapid expansion,' she said.

'Franchising will enable us to keep up with the demand we are receiving for our services so I am eagerly anticipating bringing new franchise owners onboard and keen to ensure we branch out into the sectors where we have existing clients with a need waiting to be serviced. I believe communication and good working relationships are very important, both with our franchise partners and internally with our staff. We have to understand what is important to us and more so what our partners perceive as important for them and their clients.

This means proactively managing the expectations of all involved, keeping our messages focused and realistic. Delivering what we promise, when we promise. 'Wherever you see a successful business, someone has made a courageous decision. Ayton Global Research informs courageous and profitable decisions.'
