David Kennedy

David Kennedy, Principal


When David earned his undergraduate degree in business with an emphasis in marketing, he knew market research was the direction he wanted to go. At Corona, David needs plenty of hooks on which to hang the many hats he wears. Ranging from managing research projects to providing marketing insights, Corona’s customers take full advantage of David’s breadth of skills.

A mastermind of organization and planning, customers come to David for his ability to simplify messy questions and then systematically answer them. His clear thinking and attention to detail will put your mind at ease. David has worked in many areas of research, from qualitative to quantitative, from traditional methods to the latest in online research tools. His passion for market research lies not only in identifying answers to his customers’ questions, but conveying answers that can lead to action.

Time away from the office brings outdoor adventure for David. From ice climbing and skiing in the winter to climbing, hiking and biking in the summer, there’s no chance that someone will mistake him for a couch potato. Having grown up in St. Louis, David is a lifelong Cardinals fan and he’s savoring the team’s recent championship seasons.
