"Our industry is changing and change demands a new skill set -- thought leaders who are both experienced and agile; inquisitive and action-oriented," said Gayle Fuguitt, CEO & President of the ARF. "I'm delighted to have found people who embody those qualities to help us make the 'new ARF' even more relevant to our members."

He is also an internationally recognized expert on social media listening and monitoring.

Prior to this, Jasper was VP of Insights at the industry-leading social media consultancy Converseon, Client Services Manager at BuzzBack Market Research, and Head of Primary Research for Datamonitor (Technology) in London.

He presents and publishes regularly, speaking at CASRO, Digiday, ARF events, WOMMA Summit, NewMR Social Media Research, TLHG Digital Landscape, Festival of NewMR and NYU Stern School of Business. Jasper was the lead judge for the 2010 and 2011 WOMMY Awards and a judge for 2013 David Ogilvy Awards.
