Cowan has spent more than 15 years in customer and shopper insight working with companies such as Asda, Boots, BUPA, Centrica, Lloyds TSB, Colgate and GSK.

She also spent five years working as Tesco group account director at Dunnhumby helping set up its Central Insight Unit.

QPM launched the new insight division as part of its expansion strategy and the company has nearly doubled in size in the past year.
