Synovate appoints Scott Miller North America CEO


CHICAGO — Global market research firm Synovate today announced that it has appointed Scott Miller as its North America CEO. Miller will be responsible for managing Synovate’s US and Canada business units.

Most recently, Miller served as managing director of global client relationships for Synovate, responsible for building and expanding relationships with many of the company’s largest clients. Prior to that, he served as CEO of Synovate Motoresearch, the company’s global automotive division.

Miller, who has over 22 years of market research experience, has conducted and overseen research projects in more than 40 countries during his career, spending several years in project management, methodological design, focus group moderation and strategic consulting. He began his career in market surveys at Saturn Corporation and also spent 12 years with Motoresearch, an automotive market research firm, where he was vice president and partner until Motoresearch was acquired by Synovate (then Aegis Research) in 2000.

“I’m very pleased to appoint Scott Miller as CEO for Synovate in North America,” said Robert Philpott, Synovate’s Global CEO. "He’s been responsible for driving our business with many of our top clients in North America and across the globe, and has played a key role in getting our business on track over the last several months.

“Having worked with Scott for ten years now and seeing firsthand the strength of his client service and management capabilities, I’ve come to respect him enormously in both areas and know that he will do a fantastic job as the head of our North America business.”

Miller will be based in Synovate’s Chicago office. Former North America CEO Robert Skolnick will remain with Synovate in another key leadership role, President of Industry Sectors North America, based in New York. Skolnick will also take on the additional role of assessing acquisition opportunities for Synovate across the globe.
