GeoPoll Expands Global Sales Presence
from MARIA MACHARIA in Nairobi, Kenya
NAIROBI – GEOPOLL, the world’s largest real-time mobile survey platform, on Monday (today) announced the hire of John Muthee as Vice President of Business Development in Africa.
Muthee will drive the strategy and execution of key growth initiatives as
GeoPoll expands its mobile survey capabilities across the continent.
The company recently opened a regional hub office in Nairobi and hired
several experienced business development veterans, including Wavinya
Kiagiri in Kenya, Matt Angus-Hammond in South Africa, and Gordon Grant
Biaku in Ghana.
“As GeoPoll becomes the go-to solution for organizations looking to gain
insight into African audiences, we’ve expanded accordingly,” said Steve
Gutterman, President of GeoPoll.
“Our new hires bring valuable market research experience that will be a key asset in addressing our clients’ information needs. John and his business development team will lead our sales efforts and provide clients with insight regarding key markets, demographics, and customer preferences that has heretofore not been available on a real-time basis,” Gutterman said.
Muthee most recently served as Managing Director for GfK East Africa,
where he oversaw the Consumer Choices research division, and all client
engagements across the region.
In his previous role as Regional Manager at GfK, Muthee coordinated the development of a retail panel across East Africa. Prior to joining GfK, Muthee was Country Manager for Tanzania at The Steadman Group.
GeoPoll is the world’s largest real-time mobile survey platform, reaching
a growing network of more than 200 million users in 20 countries worldwide on a deeply granular level and at unprecedented scale.
Through partnerships with telecom providers and a multimodal platform
powered by text, voice and web-based communications, GeoPoll enables
companies and organizations to gather quick, accurate and in-depth
insights on anything from preferences on consumer goods to election
transparency and access to basic government services.
