Welcome Message from our Advisory Board

Since we established IE Market Research Corporation back in 2003, we had a vision of what we wanted our company to be.

The "I" in IEMR stands for "Independent". This conscious effort to be independent allows us to work for our clients diligently and without hesitation or reserve.

It means that we do not undertake contracted white papers that support a client's technology or solution, we do not seek sponsorships, host events, or hand out gratuitous awards. In other words, we are able to independently apply our skills and expertise on specific client requirements.

Our Clients can be assured that our advice and research is unbiased and independent.

Venture Capitalist and Pioneer in Mobile Broadband Technology
Koeichi Miyazawa

My name is Koeichi Miyazawa and I am Chairman and Co-Founder at IE Market Research Corp. During the course of my twenty five-year career, I have bought and sold a number of high tech and telecommunications businesses in my capacity as CEO of Japanese venture capitalist firm—AA Capital Co., Ltd.

I have a B.S. and M.S. degree in electrical engineering from Waseda University (received in 1982 and 1984). I joined Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) in 1986 and was privileged to be a part of NTT's exclusive team of engineers doing research on on-board baseband switches for SS-TDMA systems and development of switch hardware and software for personal digital cellular (PDC) systems. In this capacity, I was extensively involved in project management of DoCoMo's third generation mobile communications network and deeply involved in the launch of the world's first commercial 3G network at NTT DoCoMo, culminating in my position as Senior Executive Engineer.

This emphasis on independence also causes us to seek out other Independent Analysts and Executive Associates that we work with on technology consulting projects or IEMR's own proprietary research. We have expanded our analyst base to over 55 Executive Associates in 30 countries, making IE Market Research Corporation one of the largest network of independent industry analyst firms in the world.

My need to see my clients succeed drives every engagement I undertake
Nizar Assanie

My name is Nizar Assanie and I am Vice President of Research and Chief Operating Officer at IE Market Research Corp. I am an economist by training and I have over 15 years of experience consulting with private sector companies, governments, and international institutions in a wide range of sectors including international trade and investment and telecommunications business strategy.

As VP (Research), I am responsible for coordinating IEMR's research portfolio. As such, I come in touch with almost all aspects of the telecoms and IT value chains. My particular areas of expertise in telecoms include forecasting models for mobile network operators, handset manufacturer supply chains, and content and services forecasting, particularly in areas such as mobile payments and navigation, mapping and location platforms.

I bring my strength of will to any assignment. I am a "go-getter" and have built a team that now generates thousands of research publications each year, all done from scratch.

I have a BA (Econ.) from Dalhousie University and an MA (Econ.) from Queen's University in Canada.

The "E" in IEMR stands for "Entrepreneurial". We value a culture where our Executive Associates and employees have a stake in the company, where innovation is part of our business process, and where we truly care about our clients' needs.

Yes, and we value flex hours, employee innovation, and have a casual dress code— all hallmarks of an entrepreneurial business culture.

The Future is Mobile (Entertainment)
Allison Crosby

My name is Allison Crosby and I am Principal Research Associate at IE Market Research Corp. I have over 15 years of telecoms sector experience, including as Senior Manager (Strategy) at AT&T where I was part of the team at AT&T responsible for the launch of the first iPhone (in collaboration with Apple, of course).

Since then, mobile applications have exploded in popularity world-wide and I am of the firm belief that with 5G network speeds not far away, mobile entertainment will be the future of communications on the mobile platform. During the course of my career, I have focused on the leading edge of communications research: fixed–mobile substitution, mobile data solutions for consumers, billing, pricing and roaming issues related to mobile data services especially as they relate to new media and gaming content. I believe that IEMR's research is at the forefront of important strategic issues facing mobile network operators, particularly as smartphones become ubiquitous across networks.

My focus at IEMR is to research and consult with clients in all areas of the mobile content and services value chain, including application analytics, campaign analytics, enterprise mobility, gaming, mobile Ad Networks and mediation engines, Mobile Advertising Platforms, and widget platforms.

I have a B.Eng. (Northwestern) and an MBA from Columbia University.

This entrepreneurial culture means that we do not aspire to be the "biggest" in anything, just "the best". What this means for clients is that we do not come with any pretensions on any file (it is not in our corporate culture). Clients can expect the best team to provide telecom business intelligence and technology consulting from IE Market Research Corporation. And you can expect us to get the job done.

This "fire in the belly" drives us to perform above our weight and with extreme flexibility.

As convergence becomes reality, Mergers and Acquisitions between Telcos and Media companies will shape the future of business models in the telecoms sector
Andy Lam

My name is Andy Lam and I am Principal Research Associate at IE Market Research Corp. I have over thirteen years of experience in the telecoms space, culminating as a Senior Business Analyst at PCCW. I have a B.Eng., M.Eng., and MBA with expertise in the area of corporate valuations, financial modeling and forecasting, and strategy advisory services.

During the course of my career, I have had the privilege of being part of a number of telecoms and media financing deals, undertaking due diligence, modelling, and business planning in support of major debt and M&A transactions, privatisations (supporting both governments and acquiring parties), and valuation exercises for hedge funds and large investors.

Given IEMR's comprehensive knowledge of technologies, carrier networks, operations, and strategies used by operators worldwide, I believe that IEMR provides deep domain expertise in the telecoms, media, and technology M&A space.
