The personal contributions that make the research sector a great place to work were recognised at the sixth annual MRS Excellence Awards on 9 June.

The awards celebrate those who have added substantially to the body of market research knowledge, through speaking at conferences, writing papers and academic success. The new MRS Fellows were also recognised for their career commitment to the promotion of the profession. The certificates and trophies were presented over lunch at Paternoster Chophouse, London.
