CHIEF executive officers and BUSINESS
This article profiles Robert Granader, CEO of MarketResearch.com (MRDC). As founder and CEO of MRDC, Granader has helped make this dot-com startup an established tool for business information users around the world. With more than a third of its business outside the U.S., in 2004 MRDC has opened offices in London, England and Melbourne, Australia, with another set to open in December 2004. This is all part of a three-pronged strategy that has given MRDC tremendous revenue lift over the past year: be the best research partner for our customer, make the service as widely available as possible, and compete on price. Being the best research partner means being a research associate for our customer, not a salesperson, according to Granader. The customers of MRDC continue to use the service, not just because it has the best research providers and the best selection of top reports, but also because customers can count on MRDC to help them buy the research that is right for them. Being widely available means working with search engines, so that MRDC reports can be found when they are needed. It also means partnering with key industry leaders, from Factiva to Amazon to Alacra, making sure users can find the research regardless of their preferred platform. Competing on price is something else MRDC is proud of, according to Granader. By being the largest aggregator, publishers are willing to give MRDC discounting flexibility that eases the burden on tightening research budgets. Granader began his career in the halls of Congress as a reporter covering Capitol Hill and the White House. As a journalist for a number of print news outlets from 1994 to 1998, he reported for newspapers ranging from Florida to Wisconsin. Granader received a B.A. in English from the University of Michigan. He is a member of the Washington, D.C., and Maryland bar associations.
