Gerry Linda, Project Specialist

Gerry Linda is the president of the marketing consultancy, Gerald Linda & Associates, with whom we have worked on dozens of projects. He is without equal in applying PRIZM data and analytics to solve marketing strategy problems. Less sophisticated users consider PRIZM data the end of their information quest. For Gerry it's the beginning, because he knows the greatest leverage derives from insightful interpretation. Further, he is an expert at combining the richness and subtlety of qualitative research with the power and representativeness of PRIZM data.

Prior to establishing Gerald Linda & Associates, Gerry was a co-founder and chief client officer at an integrated marketing communications firm, and a principal at a Top Fifty marketing research firm.
