Grace Chiu

With nearly 20 years as a dedicated marketing research practitioner, Grace's hands-on expertise spans all aspects of qualitative and quantitative research. She is highly accomplished at combining traditional research methods with the creative techniques sometimes required in multicultural research.

As Managing Director of Asian Perspective in the early 1990s, she developed innovative research tools and an intimate knowledge of the emerging U.S. Asian market. Subsequently, as Research Director with Strategic Marketing Corporation (now GfK), she was instrumental in setting up their Beijing subsidiary and growing their Asian business. In addition, she led complex multi-country studies in Europe, Asia and Latin America for major pharmaceutical clients.

Grace established GC GLOBAL in 2000 and plays a leading role in every assignment we undertake. She is the recipient of "50 Outstanding Asian Americans in Business Award" from the Asian American Business Development Center in 2009. She was the cover story in the 2009 December issue of China Fortune Magazine. In May 2011, GC GLOBAL received the "Research Company of the Year" Award at the Asian American Advertising Federation's (3AF) 2011 annual conference.
