Company History

Originally operating under the name "Evolution Research," the company was founded in 2004 by Lou Patrick, who ever since has served as principal and president. Its original mission was to provide cutting edge research insights by combining traditional and online survey methodologies. The name Evolution represented the change from old ways of doing market research to new. As on-line research became ubiquitous, Evolution's research products moved completely to an Internet-based realm. More recently, with social media taking center-stage, along with the marketing opportunities it brings, Evolution added marketing services to its list of product offerings and the company name became Evolution Research & Marketing Services. By combining marketplace insights with the ability to reach consumers through social media, Evolution Research & Marketing Services offers a unique and useful mix of business services, at affordable rates.
