Dawn Hands profile





Managing Director
BMG Research

Dawn and her former business partner established BMG Research 30 years ago this year and the Company has now grown to be one of the largest independent social and market research agencies in the UK.  Based in Birmingham, BMG works nationally and internationally, in sectors as diverse as employee engagement, health, policing, children and young people, to brand evaluations, customer satisfaction and reputation tracking research. 

Dawn’s ambitious plans to keep growing the business include a complete rebrand and the opening of a number of regional offices, including one in London during Summer 2018




 Working on more than 100 bespoke live projects at any one time, BMG frequently finds itself successfully competing against global businesses which Dawn attributes to the quality of her team, who combine technical knowledge and skills with outstanding customer service to deliver value and insight.
