Beyond staff management, Laura will be responsible for the continued growth of the M3 qualitative offering for virtual, online, and in-person research across Europe. In consideration of her new role, Haxton-Wilde shares:
“Over the past several years I have witnessed M3 expand and grow from conducting exclusively online physician work to this comprehensive offering of qualitative and quantitative services with healthcare providers, patients, and even general consumers. With such a strong panel and commitment to the continued growth and expansion of their offering, this was a natural progression. The opportunity to work with such a creative team and help expand their impressive qualitative services throughout Europe invigorates me. The possibilities are endless and I am excited to join this team and contribute to the qualitative growth of the organisation.”
Prior to joining M3 Haxton-Wilde held positions in international fielding at Viewpoint, GfK Martin Hamblin, and GfK Healthcare (formerly NOP World Health).

We recognised the need for a strong leader to head up our European growth, and Laura’s vast experience working across Europe, combined with her deep knowledge of stakeholders involved in healthcare research and considerable expertise in qualitative methodologies will allow us to expand our offering to fill the void our clients are begging us to address.”
