We have a powerful team of EXPERTS in the education sector, all of whom are truly passionate about education AND supporting our clients to ensure their long-term success.
James Leggett BA (Hons) MMRS
James is the brains behind the operation. He joined the research team in 2008 and has developed our unique MarketLED Educator products. James is a member of the Market Research Society and applies the latest innovations and developments to the education research sector.
He was educated at Norwich School, where he was Chorister for 5 years. Musical to the core he’s an excellent pianist, drummer and guitarist too. As the youngest member of the MTM team, he does tend to mention that fact quite a lot!
Meeting inspirational educators and leaders, who are united in their passion to achieve the best outcome for all.
Crissey Hewitt (MBA)
Philanthropy, Development & Alumni Relations
Starting out as a Science Teacher in the US, Crissey transitioned to philanthropy at Wake Forest University where she specialised in constituent research, fundraising strategy and process improvement.
Daniel Leggett (MBA)
If brawn came in size, build and project plans, Dan is definitely the brawn. He joined the team in 2016 as the strategic project lead and has been managing a global team of mystery shoppers every since. In the process, he also developed Mystery ShoppED, our mystery shopping portal.
Dan doesn’t do things by halves. In fact, he got married 3 times (to the same woman), lived on a barge (which sank twice), moved and renovated a house, and had a baby all in the same year!
Danny Neilson BSc (Hons), MSc
Danny will lead your research within the team – you may hear from him with various questions throughout! Prior to joining MTM, Danny studied at the University of Hull and went on to work as a Marine Biologist, spending his formative years both at the microscope and out in the field on surveys. This experience has helped him develop an unrivalled attention to detail accompanied by a firm grounding in statistical analysis.
Outside of work Danny loves spending quality time with his young family; he is a qualified PADI Divemaster, a volunteer run leader at his local running club, and an avid volleyball player.
Danny sees each day is a new challenge and particularly enjoys applying his analytic skills learnt in Marine Biology to an entirely new field. After all, data is still data regardless of the application!
