Vice President, Senior Research Consultant
John is responsible for client development, research design and project management for many of the company's clients focusing specifically in the healthcare, government and technology sectors. With more than 16 years of experience, he is well versed in both quantitative and qualitative methods and is a seasoned focus group moderator. Formerly, John was Vice President for Sales with the Jackson Organization and in a similar position with Endresen Research, both organizations specializing in healthcare research. John has played a strong role in client development at Gilmore since 2004.
Ask John what he would describe as his primary role in life and he has a quick and easy answer: "Will's dad." He likes to help out with coaching his son's teams and tries to stay active athletically so he can keep up with this rambunctious six year old. John reads, enjoys cooking on occasion and loves to travel as often and as much as time permits.

An important area in Patricia’s life is becoming acquainted with other cultures. Although she has been able to learn about cultures through travel and living abroad, she has gained an even deeper appreciation of the value of cultural diversity by hosting students from various countries in her home.
Vice President, Senior Research Consultant
|Rita has nearly 10 years of experience in the marketing research industry managing both qualitative and quantitative research projects with special emphasis on multi-mode projects integrating both types of methodologies. Often her projects explore social, medical and behavioral issues for such public agencies as King County, Washington State Department of Health and Seattle Public Utilities. Rita is also an experienced cognitive interviewer, utilizing directive techniques and employing a combination of concurrent and retrospective cognitive interviewing techniques to refine questionnaire development. |
If there is a day when Rita is not working on a client’s project or research proposal, it is easy to find her. Look for the closest golf course. We don’t mean to suggest that Rita’s interest in the game comes before most other spare time pursuits but, ask her what was the most important factor she considered when she bought a new car … trunk space for the clubs, of course!
