Robert Senior

Founder at Euromonitor International

Robert founded Euromonitor in the early 1970s and transformed it from a UK market reports publisher into a global research organisation. Over a period of twenty years he wrote, edited and published hundreds of market research studies and gave lectures and talks at many industry conferences and events.

In response to the advent of the internet in the 1990s he oversaw the development of a wide-ranging consumer relational database that evolved into Passport, now Euromonitor’s flagship product and one of the most prestigious information resources in the world. Since stepping down as Executive Chairman in 2014 he has focused on the strategic development of the business.

Robert studied History at Sheffield University and achieved an MA in Film Studies at the University of Westminster. He has been involved in philanthropic work and was Treasurer of Medecins Sans Frontieres in the early 2000s. He founded a grant-giving charity, The Chalk Cliff Trust, in 2012 and opened a community cinema, The Depot, in Lewes, East Sussex in 2017.
