We are delighted to announce Mike Cooke as new chairman of ESOMAR’s Legal Affairs Committee succeeding Adam Phillips
Mike Cooke, who sat on Council for four years, the second term as Vice President, has been appointed as the new chairman of the Legal Affairs Committee. With many years experience as Global Director: Panel Management at GfK, he will be working with the Government Affairs team to support the industry in transitioning to the new EU data protection legal framework that will come into force in May 2018. With ESOMAR’s European Insights Summit event in Brussels on 24 January, Mike is also championing the expansion of the Research Choices programme beyond the founding companies to the rest of the ESOMAR community.
Adam Phillips, who chaired our Professional Standards Committee and Legal Affairs Committee for many years, took a well-deserved retirement from these functions. He remains, however, chair of our Research Choices implementation group.
