Project management

Fred Shelley

Project Director

I like that each research initiative is like a puzzle to be solved. I find myself intrigued by that aspect of the work and really enjoy finding answers.

I love to learn every day from both my colleagues and clients. Discovering upcoming MedTech innovations and being able to work for key players in the market keeps me very motivated.

I love being a translator of abstract data into meaningful results.

As an analyst we are always the first to study the data and discover new insights in the business of our clients. I shine at managing a broad scope of analysis and programming/ data scraping techniques.

Always looking for the latest techniques and I’m Innovation driven. And I can grill one hell of a steak on a BBQ.

Demir Husejnovic

Data & Business Analyst
I enjoy being a bridge between raw insight coming from each individual respondent and conclusive insight based on a pool of participants. I’m very interested to know how my colleagues operate and what challenges they face in order to form a more complete picture of the whole research process which in turn allows me a deeper understanding of my own objectives. Also, I can probably throw a 20kg rock behind my back further than anyone else in Suazio.

My favorite part of this job is getting to see an abundance of data transition from raw information to being ordered and interpretable. I am a creative individual who thrives under pressure and seizes moments of learning with both hands.

Andrea Perciaccante

Data & Business Analyst
I really enjoy SUAZIO’s culture, people, collaboration, and support. We have each other’s back! As data analyst I am able to make sense out of raw and unstructured data. I guess I love to see how we are able to transform a mass of raw data into a well-built report and , eventually, a story. I think I always try to know how this data can better answer the business objectives, how we can structure and organize them in a way that can help the end user extract useful insights. I like to study and research literature about different topics around analysis and statistics to always be up-to-date and see what happens in and out the world of market research.

Also, I love eating pizza with mayoinaise which makes me the worst Italian ever.
