At MMR Research Associates, our client relationships are at the core of everything we do. That’s why we’re so particular about who we bring on to join our team.

We found a perfect fit in Leslie Gelman, MMR’s newest VP of Client Relationships. Leslie has over 25 years of experience in marketing research and expertise in a range of industries, including CPG, Apparel, Durables, Technology, and Communications. She brings incredible value to her new role at MMR Research Associates.

“We’re extremely happy to have someone with Leslie’s experience join MMR. Whenever we’re fortunate enough to find someone who is as well-aligned with our goals of collaborative, cooperative, client-centric, impact-driven research as Leslie is, it’s incredibly exciting to welcome them to the team.” -Bruce Olson, Managing Partner

A Midwestern transplant to Colorado, Leslie has a BBA in Marketing from the University of Michigan and an MBA in Marketing Research from DePaul University. Leslie is passionate about developing deep-trust relationships with clients and helping them unlock growth through insights. When asked, “why MMR?” Leslie said:

“There were a lot of great reasons for deciding to join MMR. Beyond being a well-established firm with a solid reputation, I was initially drawn to the alignment of core values, including an emphasis on integrity, partnership, and always striving to continue to learn and grow. But what it really came down to was the people and a consistent impression of a very smart, passionate, and welcoming group who collaborate and support each other in making a difference and doing their very best work. I am very grateful to be part of this team.”

In her free time, Leslie enjoys hiking, running, traveling, cooking, and making and collecting art.
