Savanta acquires global research consultancy ComRes

Today, we’re delighted to announce our acquisition of ComRes, the Westminster-based research consultancy. Founded in 2003, ComRes is one of the leading providers of evidence-led advice to inform reputation, public policy and communication strategies.

“This is a step into our future,” comments Roger Perowne, Global CEO at Savanta. “ComRes are genuine leaders in one of the highest profile sectors for insight. Having worked together for several years we are delighted to welcome their talented team. Their deep expertise complements our operational excellence, whilst sharing our entrepreneurial ethos – something that has been fundamental to Savanta throughout its growth.”

Perowne adds: “Through the acquisition we’re welcoming incredible talent into the business as we broaden and deepen our offering. ComRes will bring new resources and capabilities to better serve our clients around the world.” 

Underpinned by the proposition to ‘Make Better Decisions’, we formed Savanta to re-engineer research to fuel faster, easier and more effective decision making for marketers and insight professionals. ComRes strengthens our global team to more than 250, across 5 offices worldwide. 

Andrew Hawkins, Chair of ComRes, comments: “The Board recognised immediately the strategic fit with Savanta: our practice areas complement exceptionally well and it was of paramount importance for us that we find a partner with whom we share the common values of integrity, excellence and working with our teams to ensure a really great place to work.” 

Hawkins adds: “ComRes has grown organically and steadily nearly every year since our founding in 2003. Now with Savanta, we will be able to accelerate our future expansion, building on our already extensive international client base, broaden our reach into more sectors and have access to wider investment.”
