Tobii Pro announces the hiring of John Traynor as the vice president of Tobii Pro Insight Research Services in North America and William Yang as the Pro Insight Sales Manager in China.

In his new position, Traynor brings his extensive consumer research experience to Tobii Pro. He worked previously in a leadership role at several respected firms - Thin World Marketing, In Vivo BVA USA, Kantar Operations (a WPP company), as well as The Nielsen Company. Traynor built his knowledge of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) while with Information Resources Incorporated.
At Tobii Pro in China, Yang joins the team with his seven years of hands-on marketing research and consumer insight experience from both TNS and Ipsos. His experience is in working with key client management serving Fortune 500 companies.

"In the past year, we've put an emphasis on growing the knowledge base, methodologies, and scope of our Pro Insight team of consultants and researchers," said Tom Englund, President of Tobii Pro. "Eye tracking is rapidly becoming an established, standard research tool, driven by the growing adoption of non-conscious methods across the market research industry. Tobii Pro Insight Research Services will play a key role in supporting companies with this transformation on a larger scale by helping them with their testing and turning that implicit data into business-driven insights."
