We believe insights should be in service of your business
In 2000, The Connell Group was founded to bring a more business-minded approach to market research. From our firm’s inception, we have consistently sought to understand a client’s business challenges and aspirations first – so that the research we design for them can be strategic, actionable and growth-driving on the back-end. To do this effectively, we’ve built a team with a unique combination of both insights and strategy expertise.
