Chandler Mount, head of research, is a certified professional market researcher who began client-facing work in 2005 in the highly regulated Beverage Alcohol industry.

Today ACRC follows the Insights Association ethical standards in research and the International Standards Organization guidelines for market research (ISO 20252) and brand evaluation (ISO 20671) as minimum standards of practice.


ACRC is available as an ad-hoc consulting firm or as a long-term partner. Many large brands have teams of insights and researchers to crunch numbers. Niche brands may not have the need or bandwidth for a full-time researcher and that is where ACRC can play a pivotal role.
