Norstat has appointed Francesco Renga as country manager for Norstat Italy, where he will work from the newly opened office in Milan.
Renga has more than 10 years’ experience in the research industry, both in Italy and in the UK. He previously held positions at Millward Brown, GfK, Ales Research and Field Facts Worldwide.
“I’m very happy to continue the success story of Norstat Italy,” says Renga. “Thanks to our Italian team, Norstat has become the leading provider for high quality fieldwork services. I am now looking forward to strengthening our presence in the Italian market.”
For historical reasons, Norstat Italy has been a business unit of Norstat Germany. The appointment of Renga as country manager further strengthens our footprint in the Italian market and marks the beginning of a separate Italian entity.
“The success we have had in the Italian market allows to set up an independent entity and we look forward to be more present amongst new and existing clients and launch the full Norstat product suite in a very exciting market” says Christoph Irmer, CMO of the Norstat Group.
“We have seen a steady growth in our Italian business over the last few years and we are now eager to invest even more resources into one of the biggest markets in Europe. We observe a huge potential in the Italian market and in Francesco Renga we have found a candidate that will allow us to both grow the business even more and take excellent care of both current staff and clients” says Erling Eriksen, COO of the Norstat Group.
