In an effort to keep up with its growth and new initiatives, Deerfield-based Curion, a leader in sensory and consumer product research and serves Fortune 500 and other blue-chip CPG customers in the food & beverage, personal care, fragrance and home & fabric industries, has hired 35 new employees since the beginning of 2019.
Under the direction of CEO Sean Bisceglia, who joined the company in November 2018, Curion has introduced a number of new initiatives including eFive ™, a product that quickly delivers reliable consumer insights and is both affordable for emerging brands and positioned to be part of the agile development process that large CPG companies require.
S2P followed, where Curion evaluates features that are important to maximizing liking and integrate product, packaging and positioning to reinforce each other. The latest innovation is Life Labs™, an initiative that tests products to gain consumer insights in a real-life environment. These services have fueled the company's need to bring on seasoned experts in a number of different departments throughout the organization.
The largest increase for Curion in hires has been in the Sales, Analytics and Marketing teams. This investment has already paid off as Curion has recently been recognized for their marketing efforts for several campaigns, including the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals as dotCOMM award winners and through the Summit International Awards organization as Summit Creative Award winners.
