Entrepreneurship Speaker: Fergus Gamble
A career marketing researcher, Fergus has been in the business for over 30 years. After a decade of client-based experience at Colgate Palmolive and General Foods, in 1989 Fergus co-founded Vantage Research Group. In 1994, he joined Vantage with Dadson Research to form DVResearch. Then, in 2006 Fergus merged DVR with LLS Market Research to form Radix.
Particular among his strengths is providing a strategic perspective and insight for the development of his clients’ business. A second generation marketing researcher (his father was MR Manager at P&G). Fergus became fascinated by the business as a teenager, and determined to make it his career. It remains his professional passion. As if to drive home the point, he married another marketing researcher (eventually his business partner) over 35 years ago. He has never been disappointed by either decision!
Fergus sees his CEO title as meaning Chief Enabling Officer with the primary responsibility of supporting the amazing talents of the Radix team and matching them to the needs of our clients.
Outside of his professional life Fergus has recently concluded 10 years service on the Board of Directors of the Toronto Philharmonic Orchestra to support his love of classical music and is a life-long cottager.
