The Insight250 has announced an international panel of over 50 judges to select the 250 leaders and innovators receiving the 2024 industry awards. The panel has expanded from 30 in 2023 to provide deeper perspectives from more market research and insight leaders for the selection process and to continue to expand the global reach of the awards.

 Leading market research and insight professionals and experts worldwide have been named to the panel of judges for the 2024 edition of the Insight250 awards, spotlighting leaders and innovators in market research, consumer insights, and data-driven marketing. Amongst the newly-added judges are IPSOS CEO Ben Page, Insights Association CEO Melanie Courtright, MRC President Fiona Blades, MRS (Market Research Society) CEO Jane Frost CBE, and a host of new clients including well-known industry figures such as Monica Tenorio, PepsiCo, Walid Benchama, Coca-Cola, Vesna Hajnsek, Swarovski, Zoe Ruffels, Imperial Brands, Ritanbara Mundrey, Nestle, Madhavi Kale, Sodexo and Netflix’s Marianella Ghiggeri. Profiles of the complete panel of 2024 Insight250 judges can be found at Insight250.com/judges.

 The judges hail from 25 nations across six continents and represent academia, enterprises, agencies, and associations worldwide. Approximately 80% percent of the 2024 Judges previously received the Insight250 award, and about two-thirds served as Judges in 2023. The panel will be chaired again by Mark Langsfeld, CEO of mTab, and Kristin Luck, Ex-Officio President of ESOMAR.

We’re excited to have another impressive panel of judges, which we have expanded again to represent a diversity of expertise and experience from around the world and across our profession. These judges are the backbone of Insight250. They are vital to ensuring that it is a fantastic representation of the market research and insights industry's accomplishments, direction, and future.

Crispin Beale, Chief Executive Officer of Insight250

Nearly 100 ESOMAR Country Representatives will again help oversee the nomination and selection process for their respective nations, short-listing candidates for the judges to review. Each judge serves on a panel for their respective continent to select winners from that region.

It’s fantastic to see even more global insight leaders get involved with Insight250 as judges. This is another testament to the impressive impact Insight250 continues to make as it celebrates and elevates the industry.
