Forrester Research BV has promoted one of its most highly respected analysts, Matthew Nordan, to research director, at the company’s European headquarters in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Nordan will lead a newly formed team – including recently appointed associate analysts Abigail Leland and Hellen Omwando – examining pan-European online retail and mobile internet issues.
Emily Nagle Green, managing director, commented, “Our business in Europe is growing at an astonishing rate and we see enormous opportunities ahead. To capitalise on these, we will leverage Matthew’s considerable talents to extend the breadth of our pan-European research. And along with research leadership from Cliff Condon, plus the appointments of Neil Bradford as managing director of the UK Research Centre and William Reeve as group director of European Data Products, Forrester has assembled a strong, experienced and unified senior team in Europe of unparalleled accomplishment.”
Cliff Condon, group director of research at Forrester, said: “Matthew is fast becoming one of Europe’s most visible and influential research professionals and has been profiled by many of Europe’s top technology publications. He is a featured speaker at major industry events and a highly sought-after analyst for client-related strategy sessions. Matthew has already made a huge contribution to the expansion of Forrester’s European research, and his newly appointed team will benefit greatly from his analytical skills.”
Nordan was an analyst in Forrester’s eBusiness Infrastructure research team prior to his move to Amsterdam in 1999. He is a graduate of Yale University.
