Rupert Carter

Managing Director

Rupert is a tracking expert with a fierce analytical mind and uncanny ability to uncover game-changing insight. A London Business School Alumni, he is passionate about method-neutral approaches – ensuring any project we undertake is anchored by the client’s business and strategic challenges.

Lauren Ellyatt

Strategy Director

With a background in Creative Planning and a Masters in Research, Lauren is our go-to for foundational or developmental projects. A quallie at heart, she is fascinated by what drives behaviour – often quoting behavioural economics at anyone who will listen. With a passion for ensuring research is used throughout a business, she ensures everything that goes out the door is both concise and visually impactful.

Craig Meikle

Deputy Managing Director

To say Craig is passionate about data accuracy doesn’t do him justice. Not only does he quality control everything that comes in and out of our office, but he can sometimes be found giving talks to panel providers on new checks for data cleaning. He is also the most organised man you will ever meet; ensuring the Data Processing team runs like clockwork.

Kate Williams

Qualitative Director

Kate has more than 15 years experience in qualitative research, and has worked across a wide range of brands and categories both internationally and at home.

With a fascination for what makes people tick, Kate uses human insight to inform the full brand journey, from innovation and brand development right through to the challenges of effective media planning.  

When not busy exploding the office coffee machine, Kate is committed to building projects that inspire, coupled with highly efficient project management.

Jeremy Massey

Stats Director

Jeremy is our resident statistician. With over 20 years experience at Consumer Insight he can often be found in his home office (in a shed in his garden) running cluster, monadic or key driver analyses for any number of our ongoing or ad-hoc projects.

Mark Slater

Research Director

Mark’s expertise crosses numerous fields, including sponsorship, churn and exit-survey research. Working on a number of key accounts, he has an eye for insight and an ability to make even the most mundane of charts look stunning.

Robby Stribley

Associate Research Director

Coming from a business and engineering background, Robby can make the most complex of tasks look effortless. A keystone account manager on Waitrose and Channel 4, he has a keen eye for detail that has provided invaluable when designing our bespoke questionnaires.

Jack Wood

Scripting Director

Jack’s ability to run the most complex of studies allows us to script and host our own projects, ensuring great user-experience for our respondents and fast turn-around of data for our clients. His ability with computers also makes him our go-to for IT related issues; this is the man who makes all our tech tick.

Andy Robson

Quality and Data Director

Andy bridges the gap between our Client Service and Data Processing teams, and ensures that all our projects run like clockwork – ensuring that any external providers adhere to our exacting standards, optimising our internal project inputs, and making sure that we hit key milestones along the way.  He is also our Data Protection Officer, ensuring that our GDPR requirements and data integrity are industry-leading, as we handle large amounts of client data securely and efficiently.

Theo Gouldsborough

Senior Research Manager

Coming from a background in law, Theo is unwaveringly dedicated to ‘getting the job done’. Working across numerous clients, he has a knack for visuals and can often be found getting in early, staying late and making thirty-five cups of tea in the process.

Richard Baldwin

Operations Team Lead

A physicist by nature, Richard is constantly imparting knowledge to the team on all things scientific. His knack with data has him running everything from ongoing studies to complex analysis (and his penchant for comedy acting often has us in fits of laughter).

Kulraj Dhillon

Financial Controller

Kulraj looks after all our finances, from PO numbers, to chasing us for receipts for expenses, she’s always on the ball, organised and accurate.

Karl Rushton

Operations Team Lead

With a background in operations from a decade with Waterstones and having studied fine art at university, Karl has developed a keen eye for spotting the nuances and subtleties in data. A pub quiz aficionado, he’s also a keen runner with a cultured left foot on the football pitch (or so he tells us) he brings a co-operative and competitive approach to both his work and social life.

Erika Hockley

Data Processing Manager

Erika has worked for Ci for too many years to possibly mention, and works from home down south, providing support across numerous accounts and heading up the data side of the National Trust tracking study.

Lis McCann

Coding manager

Lis has worked for Ci for over 10 years and now heads up the coding team. She writes the frames, ensuring we’re really understanding the nuance of open-ended response, particularly for our advertising trackers, where understanding the difference between genuine humour or sarcastic wit can be crucial.

Beka Smith

Qualitative Research Manager

Beka is indispensable to the running of the qualitative research function here, and when she's not interviewing people or writing a debrief, Beka loves to learn and share ideas: often using this as an excuse to try and rope everyone into a pub trip, or crack open the Ci beer fridge. In fact, Beka is taking an academic sabbatical at Cambridge university to read an MPhil in Anthropological Research, sharing ideas and learning with us along the way.

Rajan Sappal

Senior Ops Executive

Raj arrived at Ci with a degree in mathematics and a postgraduate certificate in statistics with applications in medicine. His passion for data is complimented by an eye for detail - making him an invaluable member of the data & scripting team. In addition, he never backs down from any challenge set in front of him no matter how complex, not just at work but also when competing in sports.

Hajeera Bibi

Research Manager

Hajeera comes to Ci with a degree in Physics, a passion for data, a keen eye for detail and a mind open to taking on new adventures and challenges. As well as a love of science, Hajeera has an avid interest in language and fashion and can always be found with an iced coffee in hand.

Orla Mcintosh

Research Manager

With a background in English Literature, Orla is our go-to when it comes to story-telling and framing insight with a potent mix of narrative and theory. She's also one of the only people we've ever met who can make Google Slides look beautiful. 

Melody Forth

Research Manager

Melody joined Ci following 3 years running research projects for the Midcounties Co-op, bringing with her a first class degree in Psychology and an MRS Advanced Award. She's happiest when turning data into human behaviour, when reports are perfectly aligned and colour schemed, and when there's a good ratio of office dogs in the building.

Lizzie Simkin

Research Manager

With a degree in psychology (and music), Lizzie loves working out what makes people tick. With five years in research she had developed an expertise in writing, measuring and evaluating sensitive topics, as well as dealing with very senior stakeholders on tricky data requests. Current projects include managing the Bupa tracker, Dreams tracker and Channel 4.

Luke Power

Senior Ops Executive


Hayley Raxter

Ops Executive

Hayley joined Ci after earning a degree in Geography and working as a buyer at Waterstones. She is a stickler for accuracy and is experienced in handling data. A serious quizzer and self-proclaimed board game geek, she also has a passion for languages and foreign films.

Emily Stafford

Senior Research Executive


Ayesha Khairul Anuar

Research Executive

Ayesha comes from a background in Political Science and Economics. She enjoys finding key context for her clients, and challenging the status quo to find the best way of doing things. Outside of work, Ayesha loves the outdoors, she can be found hiking, running, surfing, and has taken up cycling to the office. 

Helen Townsend

Senior Research Executive

Helen joined us with a background in graphic design, brands, and cultural studies. She uses her eye for detail to make her decks look ~ just right ~ and enjoys problem solving for challenging questionnaires. When she’s not putting together snazzy decks, she’s baking something tasty for the office. 

Tash Osborn-Patel

Research Executive

Tash joined Ci from a background in Natural Sciences and Psychology. She’s often brewing five cups of tea a day, working on quant and qual projects in between, and is interested in investigating consumer behavior. Outside of work Tash loves arts and crafts – she can often be found painting or making jewelry.
