Market Research Society of India (MRSI) has announced the formation of the Managing Committee for the tenure of 2024-2027. Nitin Kamat, Chief Growth & Partnerships Officer, TAM Media Research Pvt. Ltd. was elected as the new President and takes over from Paru Minocha, Managing Director, South Asia, Insights Division, Kantar. Previously, Nitin Kamat worked as the treasurer for MRSI’s Managing Committee 2022-2024 while also being a part of MRSI’s ISEC Committee.

Additionally, Puneet Avasthi and Shuvadip Banerjee were elected as Vice-Presidents, Anila Vinayak as the Secretary, and Parijat Chakraborty as the Treasurer for MRSI. The new Managing Committee was announced at MRSI’s 36th Annual General Meeting held on June 27, 2024 in Mumbai.

Soon after its inception, the former Managing Committee adopted the strategy of focusing on three broad pillars- building profile, building pride and building the network and reach. The committee was responsible for the successful implementation and adoption of the new Socio-economic Classification System, ‘ISEC’. Among the various industry stakeholders that adopted ISEC are The Indian Society of Advertisers (ISA), research users of various organisations such as ITC, HUL, Marico, Dabur India, etc., research agencies including Kantar, IPSOS, as well as key media agencies. Additionally, MRSI also indicated that the market research sector once again recorded positive growth, and will formally announce The Indian Research & Insights Industry 2024 Update in September 2024.

Congratulating the newly elected President, Paru Minocha, Managing Director, South Asia, Insights Division, Kantar, and outgoing President of the Market Research Society of India said, “I am grateful for the unwavering trust MRSI members placed in the current Managing Committee. Key initiatives like the launch of the Socio-economic Classification System, ‘ISEC’, and the Market Sizing report of FY 2022-23, have given a new direction and scale to the vision of the association going forward. As I pass on the baton, I wish the incoming Managing Committee under the leadership of Nitin Kamat all the best.”

On being announced as the newly elected President of MRSI, Nitin Kamat, Chief Growth & Partnerships Officer, TAM Media Research Pvt. Ltd., said, “I am honoured to take forward the role of MRSI President. The market research industry has seen a seismic shift, making it crucial to stay ahead of the curve. My focus will be to engage new minds, to not only maintain existing standards but also implement a new set of ideas and initiatives. In addition to building MRSI’s 3 Pillars – Profile, Pride, and Network, I firmly believe, ‘Building Trust’ is another crucial pillar that we will work upon. I look forward to strengthening global connects, deepening government connects and driving more initiatives for active participation from regional players. I am confident of achieving these goals along with the new elected managing committee members.”
