Market Facts, Inc., Arlington Heights, Illinois-based market research and information company, has promoted Larry Labash to executive vice president. Labash joined Market Facts in 1973 as a market research analyst. Most recently he served as senior vice president. Labash, who is based in the company's Chicago-area headquarters, currently manages client service units in the western division of Market Facts, which are responsible for 13 of the company's top 20 clients.
Market Facts last month was acquired by AEGIS Group PLC, a major media buying and consulting company based in the United Kingdom, with 69 offices in 30 countries. "We're extremely excited about the opportunities that AEGIS presents us with in the global marketplace," Labash says. Before the acquisition was announced, Labash said the goal of Market Facts was to become the dominant market research company worldwide.
