We’re thrilled to announce that Amy Henry has joined Whitepenny to lead our Consumer Insights division. Amy’s experience speaks for itself – Leo Burnett, The Geppetto Group, C+R Research – and she brings over 25 years of excellence in the applied research and strategy consulting fields to our growing team. She’ll lead Consumer Insights here at Whitepenny, enabling us to deliver more precise, more personalized, and more effective brands.
Having worked with many outside research agencies over the years, we knew that we would eventually bring that capability in house. We just needed to find the right person. That’s Amy.Jon Cofsky, Principal at Whitepenny.
Whitepenny’s Consumer Insights division combines qualitative understanding (focus groups, interviews) with quantitative research (digital analytics) to provide us with the raw material to build stronger, better brands. For 18 years, we have believed in outcomes-based branding and starting our conversations with “Why?” in order to align business strategy with brand identity. With the addition of Amy, asking the right questions and finding the right answers is a whole lot easier.
