Recommendations

  • Eleanor is a top-notch professional dedicated to getting the job done right in the desired time frame. She has great attention to detail and is well-equipped to successfully manage client relationships.

    Linda Marshall; Managing Vice President, Research Business Analytics at Gartner

  • I have know Eleanor for almost 3 years now. And, I have really enjoyed working with her - and there are two key reasons for that: (1) She is always open to suggestions/ willing to try something new (though it may seem counter intuitive in the beginning) and then leave no stones unturned to give that approach her best shot; and (2) Working with her, you do not need to worry about yourself. She is the one who would take that charge! However, having said that, she is a tough task manager, and follows up on every bit of detail.

    Sandeep Arora; Executive Vice President & Head - Enterprise Data Management

  • Eleanor is one of the best people I’ve worked with in market research. She is an astute manager of people and details and gets the project done to the client’s satisfaction and delight. Over the two years we worked together, she repeatedly illustrated her technical market research knowledge and her ability to lead, organize and deliver large projects. She would be an asset to any organization lucky enough to have her join them.
