Warren, NJ (February 16, 2016) – As a global leader in digital data collection, Lightspeed GMI recently celebrated 10 years in its Paris, Munich and ‘s-Hertogenbosch offices.

“This milestone is a testament to Lightspeed GMI’s continued focus on quality data and marketing research innovation. We leverage our local market knowledge to deliver trust and confidence to clients around the world,” stated Leon de Koning, Managing Director NCEE who celebrated his 10 year anniversary on 1 January 2016.

“A strong team is what keeps positive momentum going; it has made all the difference in these past 10 years,” stated Michel Pelegrin, Director of Sales for France since the opening of the Paris office in 2006. “We thank our clients, partners and our employees in EMEA for all of the success we have achieved.”

To re-inforce its focus on local markets across Europe, Lightspeed GMI recently relaunched multilingual versions of its corporate website.
