Meet the Team
Founded by Ngaire Reid in October 1996, we are a truly independent field company. We offer a wide range of quality services to the New Zealand and overseas market research industries, as well as central and local government departments.
One of the factors affecting the quality of a market research project is, to a great extent, the quality of the fieldwork. Only accurate, unbiased data can truly reflect the attitudes and behaviours of the population.
DirectorOriginally a trained teacher with fifteen years’ experience, Ngaire then moved into Sales Management roles. Prior to starting Reid Research Services Limited in October, 1996, Ngaire worked for 10 years as National Field Manager for Heylen Research Centre and 18 months in the same role for the ACNielsen group of companies.
I love the market research industry and bring that enthusiasm to both my staff and our clients. My real challenge has been to develop a company identity which my staff respect, our clients are attracted to and our competitors admire.
After many years working in market research, I know all the tricks and traps.We may not be the cheapest, but we’re very cost effective as we do provide data you can have 100% confidence in - the “right” data.
