Mercator Advisory Group Names Nicholas Bisconti Director Primary Research Services

Mercator Advisory Group today announced that the company has appointed Nicholas Bisconti as Director, Primary Research Services, effective June 1, 2021. Most recently Nicholas Bisconti was the Founder and Executive Marketing Advisor of Actionable Insight Research, LLC and Adjunct Professor of Business Research Methods at Suffolk University, in Boston MA.

The new hire brings expertise that better positions the company in gaining valuable insight into the key issues that affect the payments and banking industries.

During the past three decades, Mr. Bisconti has focused on providing leadership support and advisory services in three key industry sectors: Technology, Financial Services, and Healthcare.

Before joining Mercator, Mr. Bisconti held the role of Founder and Executive Marketing Research Advisor at Actionable Insight Research, LLC, a freelance practice started in 2017. Before deciding to launch his entrepreneurial venture, he served as Managing Director of 451 Research | Advisory, a global research and advisory firm.

He brings exceptionally strong skills and a vision into the payments space and how this affects Mercator’s clients. We are thrilled to have him join our team. Nick will be driving the expansion of our already robust Primary Data Service practices as well as adding significant quantitative analysis and storytelling-through-data experience to the team.
