The growth of the team is driven by growing demand from Walgreens for whom Verve have built one of the world’s largest and most joined up community panels. Viewpoint integrates 2 years of purchase and prescription data with a live weekly update. This empowers Walgreens with Verve to understand the “why behind the buy” at both a macro and granular level.
Andrew Cooper, Verve CEO, states “Verve North America (Chicago and Toronto offices) is doing ground-breaking work and we are very excited to see the growth as our offering gains traction in the marketplace”.
Verve has also hired Shruti Shah as Analyst, Melanie Ackland and Natasha David both as Community Managers, in its Toronto office headed up by Suzanne Costa.
