Link becomes West Coast account manager for GfK’s gold-standard studies of automotive brand health

Louisa Link – a consumer research veteran who has consulted with major car makers – has joined GfK’s AutoMobility™ team as West Coast account manager. She will service GfK’s ongoing client relationships in the region, as well as seeking out new and lapsed buyers.

Since 1997, Link has been Principal of Consumer Link, a boutique research agency consulting with clients to help them understand evolving consumers wants and needs. Consumer Link counts major auto manufacturers – including Kia, Toyota, and Honda – as clients, as well as key brands in financial services, tech, retail, and other industries.

From 1989 to 1996, Link held account-facing roles at three major ad agencies – DMB&B; Foote, Cone & Belding; and Hill Holliday. During these stints, she developed and led key research programs for automotive clients, including General Motors and Infiniti.

A dual US and Canadian citizen, Link holds a Master of Arts degree in Psychology from Yorkville University and a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities from Brigham Young University. She resides in Los Angeles and British Columbia.
