"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."

Before joining the ARF, Jasper worked in Ipsos' Strategy Partner Group, providing guidance to major clients on all aspects of corporate and brand strategy. 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.

Julie Halpin Anderson joins the ARF as consulting EVP, Member Solutions & Engagement. A 25+ year veteran on the agency side, Julie was most recently the CEO and an original founder of WPP's youth agency, Geppetto, which she ran for the last 15 years. She has a deep respect for the role of research in unlocking ideas and growth potential for clients in all categories. At Geppetto, she was instrumental in translating the agency's thoughtful, intelligent research into actionable, practical implications and ideas for clients.
