Fors Marsh Group (FMG) opened its second office in Columbus, Ohio, in February to enhance productivity for national and global data collection and processing. The Columbus office will service FMG’s data operations by managing the design, distribution, collection, and analysis of paper, phone, online, mobile, and in-person surveys as well as the associated data technology management and respondent support systems for this type of work. FMG’s surveying capabilities span seven key markets: technology, consumer, health, finance, defense, homeland security, and policy.
Columbus was selected due to its proximity to top colleges, a qualified workforce, strong economic growth, and a centralized location for data collection. The new office will be led by Jason Marsh, Vice President of Technology and Operations at FMG.
“Last year, FMG processed over one million survey responses for a wide variety of clients, and we expect that volume to increase substantially this year,” said Mr. Marsh. “We’re already seeing faster processing at a lower overall cost through the location and workforce in Columbus, while maintaining our strict privacy and confidentiality standards.”
“Opening our second office in Columbus enhances scalability and agility as we continue to build new partnerships and take on a large number of new projects,” said Ben Garthwaite, Senior Vice President. “We look forward to leveraging the new location to improve our data operations capabilities and meet the needs of our current and future clients.”
“The application of science to create socially meaningful impact continues to be FMG’s focus,” said Dr. Sean Marsh, CEO. “The value of the impact we create is directly related to the rigorous, thoughtful collection and analysis of data. We take great pride in our sophisticated models and academically trained scientists who work in tandem with our business strategists to solve complicated challenges. Our office in Columbus ensures we start this entire process efficiently and accurately.”
