Survey Magazine names Raj Manocha one of 20 Researchers You Need to Know

by Susan O'Neill.

20Researchers_rajWe’re thrilled to share the news that AskingCanadians Senior Vice President Raj Manocha has been selected as one of Survey Magazine’s 20 Researchers You Need to Know.

The latest issue of the digital magazine, out today, includes the publication’s annual list of top researchers within the industry.

Raj is profiled as a Research Future Leader. Here’s an excerpt from the article:

At age 34, Raj has already accomplished in his career in the marketing research industry what many who are much more senior have not yet achieved. After three years, under Raj’s leadership, AskingCanadians has become one of the most recognized online data collection firms in Canada and has grown by over 250 per cent in revenues and to more than 40 employees.

This also translates to managing over 1,200 projects in 2013 — 17 times the number of projects being handled by the shop when Raj joined the firm in 2011. This is particularly impressive considering that revenues in the market research industry in Canada have been flat for the past 5 years.

Since joining AskingCanadians, Raj has demonstrated not only his leadership capability and ability to create a position of distinction for himself and the company, but has proven his ability to accept the responsibility to help engage the next generation of market research leaders to become involved in helping to build the industry in Canada.
