A Co-Founder and Principal of Edge, Jon has spent 25 years in the survey research field developing strategic quantitative and qualitative research for clients in the corporate, political, and non-profit sectors.
Jon has developed, executed, and analyzed strategic market research studies for such diverse companies as Citrix Systems, California Dental Association, Sprint/Nextel, and ESPN.com. Whether working on a branding study for a global corporation, a usability test for a start-up, or measuring loyalty and predicting retention for a membership association, Jon brings a combination of industry experience, statistical know-how, and business savvy to each job. Many clients continue to seek him out for advice long after their studies are completed.
Jon began his marketing research career at Peter Hart Associates, followed by almost a decade as an analyst for The Mellman Group. He founded Edge Research in 1997 because he was interested in using new methodologies to get better information to clients faster and for less money.
Over the last few years, Jon has served on the boards of two start-up technology companies, Viral Media Productions and CimSuite. An avid sports fan, he started playing fantasy baseball during the Reagan years, and now gets his thrills cheering on his children Sydney and Will on the soccer and baseball fields.
