We’re excited to announce that we have five new joiners at THE PLANNING SHOP who will be working across our UK and US teams. Please join us in welcoming Julia Ingram, Stephanie Seeliger, Paola Gutierrez, Tamara Moubazbaz and Tim Browne!
Find out more about our new team members below.
Julia Ingram Senior Research Executive
Julia started her career working at a CRO, where she conducted qualitative research in various therapeutic areas and developed patient-completed questionnaires for use in clinical trials. She then moved directly into the clinical space, supervising research coordinators in oncology trials. Julia is excited to return to the qualitative space and dive into the marketing side of the industry.
Julia’s interest in healthcare began at Emory University, where she majored in Anthropology and Human Biology and minored in Predictive Health. She is passionate about patient-centered research and bringing the patient perspective to pharmaceutical clients and is thrilled to support these companies as they work to change patient lives.
In her free time, Julia enjoys baking, crocheting, and exploring the theatre and art scene in NYC with her family and friends.
Stephanie Seeliger Senior Research Executive
You’ll find Stephanie asking a lot of “why” and using a combination of head and heart to seek out the answer. Getting into market research after graduate school, she’s learned the benefit of asking strategic questions and gathering data to better understand human thinking and behaviour.
With previous experience in both qualitative and quantitative research projects for primarily media, CPG and higher education clients, she looks forward to learning about and executing pharmaceutical and healthcare research.
Stephanie’s education background includes a BS in journalism from Suffolk University (Boston, MA) and MS in clinical psychology from Rivier University (Nashua, NH).
She’s currently living in the greater Boston area with her partner and their beagle, Marty. In her spare time, she stays active, with three half marathons under her belt! She also enjoys training of all kinds (spin, lifting, yoga, anything!). To relax, Stephanie paints and occasionally writes or plays music with old friends.
Paola Gutierrez Senior Research Executive
Paola’s education background includes BAs in Marketing and International Business from Loyola University Chicago and an MBA from the Quinlan School of Business.
Prior to joining TPS, Paola held the position of Executive Researcher at Shapiro + Raj and was a Market Research Intern at Edelman Intelligence.
Driven by curiosity, Paola tries to approach every challenge with fresh eyes and an eager mind. Building on her experience, she is excited to continue helping pharmaceutical companies uncover actionable insights and to keep learning about what drives human behavior and decision making.
While originally from El Paso, Texas, Paola is currently living in Chicago with her partner. During her spare time, she enjoys playing board games, trying out new restaurants, and travelling home to see her family.
Tamara Moubazbaz Research Director
Tamara has always been curious about what drives human behaviour, and this curiosity led her to market research 18 years ago after obtaining a Psychology degree. In that time, she has worked in Toronto, New York, Geneva and London. Her career has spanned many sectors, from Healthcare, to CPG, Media, Financial, Tech and Sport. She has also spent a few years on the other side of the business as a client. As a quantie she loves to translate numbers into compelling stories for her clients.
Outside of work, Tamara loves live music, baking and eating. In her pre-pandemic life, she would frequently go to gigs, practice yoga, and check out the latest restaurant openings. These days she is launching a side business of doggie cakes (pupcups), and bonding with her six month old cockapoo Alfie.
Tim Browne Head of EU Research
Tim joins us from RAPP Dubai where he was Head of Planning. Recent projects include leading brand positioning development for Marhaba (Emirates Group) and MG in the GCC, which involved running workshops, creating positioning concepts, refining these through qualitative research and proving the lead concept in quantitative research.
As a research specialist Tim covers both Qualitative and Quantitative techniques. Tim passionately believes in the power of consumer and cultural insights to help solve business problems and uncover business opportunities.
Tim has worked with a number of pharmaceutical companies during his career, including with GSK on respiratory, Leo Pharma on dermatology and Reckitt Benckiser and Pfizer on pain management. He has worked at McCann Health and was a team leader at Millward Brown.
