Truth Board Director Dr Mark Thorpe Awarded MRS Fellowship


Dr Mark Thorpe, Board Director of Instinctif’s Insight & Research team Truth, has been named a Fellow of the Market Research Society (MRS). He received this fellowship based on his significant contribution to research understanding across a range of topics, via a number of published papers and conference presentations.

Previously, he has supported MRS as a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Market Research and has been a frequent contributor to MRS publications and events. Mark’s work has fostered a closer relationship between commercial research and academia and been a champion for the need for inclusion in research.

Mark has over 25 years’ experience in strategic insight and has worked with many major global companies.  He has practised across numerous sectors, including healthcare, technology, retail and financial services. A keen observer of consumer and shopper worlds, Mark is passionate about identifying likely futures and their potential consequences for business.

He holds a PhD and is an Honorary Fellow of Royal Holloway (University of London). He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

Mark said: “MRS has been a force for good in the research industry throughout my career. In our unstable world, the role of the organisation is more important than ever. I have always regarded MRS Fellows as beacons of the industry, so to be awarded a Fellowship feels really special and is something I am immensely proud of. I will continue to work hard to ensure that truth continues to matter!”
