SKIM To Open San Francisco Office in Summer 2012
SAN FRANCISO (June 7, 2012) - SKIM, an international market research agency, will open a new office in San Francisco this summer. This will be the fifth location for SKIM, which is headquartered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and has offices in New York, Geneva and London. The new office will enable SKIM to more efficiently serve its clients on the West Coast, as well as expand its client roster in the technology, finance and telecommunications industries.
“As we continue to gain more clients in North America, a West Coast expansion is the next logical step in our growth,” said Joris Huisman, new venture director for the San Francisco office. “San Francisco’s vibrant, innovative business community will enable us to grow our client base in the region, as well as more efficiently serve our established West Coast clients.”
The new office will be led by new venture directors Joris Huisman and Eline van der Gaast. Huisman and Van der Gaast, both experienced SKIM project managers with expertise in the technology and CPG sectors, are charged with growing the West Coast team to support SKIM’s multinational client base. SKIM’s cross-regional approach to client service ensures that clients throughout the U.S. and Europe benefit from SKIM’s 30 years of global marketing research experience, no matter where they are located.
“SKIM’s worldwide network of marketing research experts is designed for maximum knowledge sharing and collaboration. We are large enough to meet the needs of top multinational companies with multi-country studies, but we are small enough to know our colleagues across the Atlantic,” said Van der Gaast. “Our growing team will work closely with SKIM’s New York office, as well as with our teams in Europe to serve clients on the West Coast and worldwide.”
The new office will be located at 156 Second Street, San Francisco, CA 94105.
Founded in 1979, SKIM is a dynamic and rapidly growing market research agency with offices in Rotterdam, Geneva, London and New York. A San Francisco office will open in the summer of 2012.
