SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 4, 2009) - Strategic interactive research and technology company Vision Critical(R) welcomes Peter Harris as the company's new Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand. Harris has more than 20 years of marketing experience, including nine years as a leader with the largest employee-owned research agency in Australia.

Peter Harris has worked as a marketer, research buyer and supplier to some of Australia's largest corporations. He has spent most of the past decade working at Colmar Brunton, most recently as Managing Director. He's a respected leader and currently serves as National President of the Australian Market and Social Research Society (AMSRS).

"Vision Critical is fresh and energetic, with a great company culture," says Harris. "I'm really excited to join a killer team and leverage what is already the leading and most flexible community panel platform in the world - to build the best local strategic research agency in Australia and New Zealand."

"Peter is a real asset to the team," says Vision Critical CEO, Angus Reid. "Australia and New Zealand are a big part of the company's global expansion plans and Peter is certainly the right person to take us forward."
