Meet Our Team
Patrick J. Gorman
Founder & CEO
Patrick J. Gorman is an experienced market research executive who has held senior positions in leading global research companies such as Synovate, Equifax, Quester, and Research International, among others. He has worked extensively with PhD thought leaders to bring to market a variety of innovative and disruptive technologies that effectively and fundamentally changed research models.
Throughout his career, Patrick has had an interest in new technologies and their application to market research. He first successfully combined the two fields when he founded a business with Research International that used IBM personal computers to provided clients with next day customer survey results during a time when the industry standard was 7 days. Next, he led the very successful marketing efforts for the Interactive Opinion Network (ION), which introduced touch screen technology to mall interviews. Patrick also was an early adopter of Internet technologies, managing sales teams that transitioned clients from traditional data collection methods to Internet e-panel data collection. Recently, as CEO of Quester, Patrick introduced the industry to an online conversational moderator called Socrates, which allows clients to automate the probing of open ended questions in quantitative surveys and to conduct in-depth interviews.
Patrick has an impressive history of leading companies to financial and operational success: transitioning Quester from a struggling boutique to a multimillion dollar international industry leader, designing the turnaround of Q Research Solutions and preparing the company for sale, and repositioning Target Research Group for growth as its Chief Marketing Officer. Patrick is pleased to be leading PersonaPanels into the new frontier of machine learning and market research.
