Following an 8 year marketing career on petfoods and subsequently moving to advertising at agencies like Leo Burnet, Fiona set up MESH Experience in 2006 to fill a gap in market research. Fiona created a new approach to capturing every experience people have with brands, from TV ads to social media to seeing brands in store, called Real-time Experience Tracking. This award-winning approach was described by Harvard Business Review as “a new tool (that) radically improves Marketing Research” and MESH uses this to help clients to take quicker and smarter decisions about their investment. Fiona now lives in Manhattan and enjoys exploring Lower East Side, her new neighbourhood, and embracing the fantastic art galleries and cultural events that New York offers. As well as being the event lead for WIRe in New York and sitting on the WIRe advisory board, Fiona is a Fellow of the Market Research Society in the UK, a member of the Marketing Society and runs the Ginny Valentine Badge of Courage Awards. MESH is a certified Woman-Owned Business and was delighted to be awarded Woman-Owned Business of the Year in March 2017 by Delta Air Lines, one of its valued and long-standing clients.
