We begin this new year ready to further revolutionize market research and knowledge sharing, which we will accomplish by becoming an even more technologically-bolstered and globally connected firm.
2012 closed with a long list of accomplishments: our dedicated team worked hard to complete > 2,000 projects worldwide entailing more than 10,000 expert consultations from hydroelectric power in Alaska to new medical treatments in New Zealand. We grew our Operations Team significantly and welcomed three Managing Partners to enhance our international locations in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and China. Finally, the launch of our proprietary software will catapult us into a bigger and more successful 2013.
The beginning of each year is always an exciting time for Atheneum, as we kick off ambitious new initiatives. 2013 will see an even more comprehensive service portfolio and enhanced expert communication channels.
We are very excited to launch the Expert Forum, an interactive online conference room where network members can share their work and ideas, as well as comment on that of others. We hope that you find this a valuable communication and learning tool.
On behalf of everyone at Atheneum Partners, we wish you all a very happy and prosperous year and look forward to collaborating with you further in 2013.
