DENVER – Dec. 15, 2015 – iModerate, a leading consumer insights firm, has named Steve Lopez Vice President. He will be responsible for leading iModerate’s entry into new markets and cultivating strategic new client relationships.

Lopez joins iModerate after serving as President and CEO of OneTouchPoint Mountain States, where he oversaw all operations during their record setting growth, while achieving industry-leading profitability resulting in the sale of the company.

“Steve has a great combination of broad marketing industry expertise and deep relationships with some of the biggest consumer brands in the world,” said Jen Drolet, iModerate CEO. “His keen understanding of marketing strategy, research, loyalty and the customer experience make him a perfect partner and advisor to brands that are looking for better ways to understand and serve their audiences.”

In his new role, Lopez will focus on client growth and industry diversity to continue to expand the reach of iModerate’s consumer insights.

“I’m excited to join the iModerate team as I was always amazed at their deep understanding of the American consumer,” said Lopez. “I have seen firsthand how effective qualitative research can provide context and give organizations the story necessary to make better decisions. Through our proprietary approach and tools, I look forward to bringing that level of understanding to new markets and industries, and in doing so, giving our clients a more informed way forward.”

The insights I received from iModerate really brought our NPS program to life. While it was always highly-visible and important to key stakeholders it did not resonate as well with the majority of employees. The iModerate piece rounded out the NPS program and brought it to a place where it is now more valued, transparent and salient across the organization. Having the consumer’s voice and that context has helped us build business cases and impact operations in a way that has led to great success.
