KJT Group Opens its First European Office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Honeoye Falls, NY - 05 September 2012 – KJT Group, Inc. is pleased to announce it has established its first European office, in the Netherlands. KJT Group, a market research and evidence based consulting company headquartered in Honeoye Falls, New York conducts domestic and global research for clients in complex markets such as the healthcare and sustainability industries. 

“Expanding our presence into Europe at this time is a strategic imperative,” says President Kenneth J. Tomaszewski, PhD. “It is simply part of our commitment to deliver superior insights and service to our multinational and European based clients. With a rapidly increasing proportion of our research being conducted globally, a presence in Europe will allow KJT Group to provide enhanced service to our European and domestic research and marketing clients. We also feel that our strong expertise in the US and North American healthcare markets will be a key differentiator for our European based clients.” 

Initially, Tomaszewski and Stuart O'Connell, Senior Research Executive, will head up the office in Amsterdam. Their focus will be to meet with existing clients, expand regional partner relationships, and establish the European based team. “One of my primary goals is to replicate the same quality and insight delivery model currently in place in the US, which means that we need to identify a practice leader who shares those values,” said Tomaszewski. “We feel that this can best be accomplished by committing to being on the ground.” 

When asked why KJT Group selected the Netherlands, Tomaszewski said, “Amsterdam geographically provides easy access to our partners throughout Europe and is a rapidly growing business community. When representatives from the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) reached out to us last Fall to help us with our expansion plans, it solidified our choice.” 

KJT Group was established in 2007 and employs more than 30 fulltime staff in New York, Philadelphia, Texas, South Carolina and Amsterdam. KJT Group is a member of the National Council on Public Polls (NCPP), Council of American Survey Research Organizations (CASRO) and the European Society Opinion and Marketing Research (ESOMAR).
