She is skilled in establishing research programs to help inform actionable insights and often helps brands fine tune their messaging to target purchase decision makers and influencers via win/loss analysis, brand tracking, message testing and segmentation studies. Outside of work, Kathleen enjoys spending time with her husband and two children and getting outside in nature whether it be in her garden or hiking.
Since joining KS&R in 2012, Dan Conners has primarily focused on the Retail, E-commerce, and Logistics industries. Within this ever-evolving space, he works closely with clients to plan and execute global initiatives in the areas of price optimization, new product development, segmentation, value proposition, brand health and messaging, and customer journey.
