Who We Are

We believe in the power of listening.
And it’s more important than ever before.

Research Anywhere was spun out of our sister agency, Romeo Company, where we captured countless research interviews over the years and edited them together to create powerful stories through video. But we discovered that, no matter what the industry, the research process often broke down in the same places—especially in virtual research.

So we reimagined the qualitative experience from the ground up, and built a team that’s focused on the power of listening.

John Romeo

Founder

​John started his career on the client side, attending marketing research sessions for various financial products. He’s eaten countless M&Ms behind two-way mirrors in dark back rooms while imagining better ways to experience research.

He built Romeo Company, a creative agency, which has been partnering with clients and companies to bolster their research reporting since 2013. John’s team has captured research all over the U.S. for top financial, software and entertainment companies.

“Consumer research is important. In a noisy world, it allows us to focus, listen and understand. It brings us closer to each other, and leads to better products and services. When it’s done right, everybody wins.”
—John Romeo

Chelle Precht

Chelle Precht

Director of Research Insights

Chelle has been on the provider side of research for her entire career. Working at large, medium and small research companies before ultimately starting her own company in 2003, her goal has always been ensuring that the clients’ objectives were met on time and on budget. She has executed hundreds of thousands of interviews with products ranging from automobiles to zucchini with both B2B and B2C consumers.

She joined Research Anywhere because of the exciting opportunity it offers clients; impeccable end to end research unearthing insights with quality, white glove service.

“Clients are facing unrelenting demands on their schedule, being asked to do much more with less time and resources. Research Anywhere is the partner these clients need to successfully navigate those demands without sacrificing quality.”
—Chelle Precht

John and Chelle are supported by a team of client-focused researchers, moderators, account managers, video editors, graphic artists, virtual event producers, recruiters and project managers. Research Anywhere is based in Richmond, Virginia, but our platform and process can be used anywhere, for any industry.
