SKIM expanded to the West Coast: 5th SKIM office in San Francisco

Press release: San Francisco (June 22, 2012)

In 2012, we opened a SKIM office in San Francisco. In addition to offices in Rotterdam, New York, Geneva and London, this new office is the place where innovation comes to life. We enjoy being located in an area surrounded by many state-of-the-art, technology-driven companies!

Being close to our clients

Since 1979, SKIM’s philosophy has been to provide great answers, creating insights that have impact and can be trusted. And that is not just because of our advanced methodological expertise. It is our belief that by being close to our clients we can better understand the business challenges you are facing and work together to provide you with innovative solutions to these issues. With the opening of our San Francisco office we are closer to current and new West Coast clients.

“As we continue to gain more clients in North America, a West Coast expansion was the next logical step in our growth,” said Joris Huisman, new venture director for the San Francisco office. “San Francisco’s vibrant, innovative business community will enable us to grow our client base in the region, as well as more efficiently serve our established West Coast clients.”

Our San Francisco team

The San Francisco office is led by new venture directors Joris Huisman and Eline van der Gaast. Joris and Eline are both experienced SKIM project managers with expertise in the technology and CPG sectors, having worked from our Rotterdam and New York offices respectively.

“SKIM’s worldwide network of marketing research experts is designed for maximum knowledge sharing and collaboration. We are large enough to meet the needs of top multinational companies with multi-country studies, but we are small enough to know our colleagues across the Atlantic,” said Eline. “Our growing team will work closely with SKIM’s New York office, as well as with our teams in Europe to serve clients on the West Coast and worldwide.”

Our office is located at 156 Second Street, San Francisco, CA 94105.
