Founder and Chief Insight Officer
FUEL was founded by Craig Griffin, a UK national with 20 years of experience in the research industry in Asia, including MD roles with GfK, InsightAsia & MESH. With a western upbringing and a research career largely in Asia, Craig acts as a bridge between cultures for Western clients and agencies wanting to understand Asian markets.
Craig's market research experience covers all major research methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative. He is passionate about keeping up with the latest thinking in research and was an early adopter of online qual methodologies which now drive over half of FUEL's business.
