It’s About Technology…
Mercury Analytics was founded by Ron Howard, an experienced technology industry entrepreneur. Mr. Howard has been the Founder, President and CEO of public and private high-tech companies, including Hayes, the world’s first modem communications company, as well as SpeakOut.com, an Internet-based social media and research organization that developed breakthrough Internet survey technologies. Mr. Howard has a history of hands-on corporate leadership as employee #1 and has served as chief executive of multi-hundred million dollar public and private companies.
“At Mercury, we pride ourselves on developing breakthrough techniques to gather insights more naturally and therefore more accurately, to analyze data more rapidly, and to visualize results in powerful ways that present findings clearly to our clients — all through automated technologies that make research much more affordable.”
Mr. Howard has served an array of clients including leading TV networks NBC, CNN, MSNBC and the FOX News Channel, media companies Condé Nast, Hearst, Time, American Media, Wenner Media, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, movie studies, national retailers, and services companies.
Unlike other research firms, in addition to a team of research professionals, Mercury employs its own technology development department headed by Scott Brickner, who serves as the lead architect for all of Mercury’s advanced tools and technologies.
Today Mercury provides advanced research services for an array of clients including research firms across the nation and around the world, associations, political campaigns, communication and crisis management firms, and corporate research and marketing departments.
