Vision Critical Announces Paris Office Expansion

“This past year has been good for recruiting new talent and developing our market research tools and proprietary panels,” says Patrick Klein, Managing Director of Vision Critical France. “Last year, our priority was to build a team of experts in qualitative and quantitative research in the Healthcare industry. This year, while maintaining our existing commitments to large French companies, we’re adding experts in other disciplines to bring together the best people, best technology and best proprietary panels.”

Business Development Manager Charlotte Taupin is one of the newest additions to Vision Critical’s team in France. A former Ipsos employee, Taupin will focus on Vision Critical’s interactive, online custom panels that enable global companies to connect with and listen to their customers. The next step for the company’s French headquarters will be to hire additional employees who specialize in a variety of research verticals – including Consumer Goods, Technology and Public Affairs.

In addition to expanding the office this year, the company’s France headquarters has also debuted a French version of the company website ( It features industry-insight blog postings and product information, such as Sparq – the company’s market-leading research technology for online community panels.

Vision Critical is a world leader in global online panel research. The company hired 109 new employees in 2009, with plans to fill another 120 new global staff positions in 2010. The company currently has offices throughout the US, Canada, UK, France and Australia, with plans to expand global operations into China, Germany and other parts of Europe.
