Industrial Market Information, MDM Welcomes Economist Bridget Strand

Addition of Strand deepens the companies' analytics and research capabilities.

In a move to deepen its predictive market analytics and research capabilities, Industrial Market Information (IMI), Boulder, CO, announced that Bridget Strand, Ph.D., has joined the industrial markets research firm as Economist. While her primary role is with IMI, Strand will also serve as Economist for Modern Distribution Management, IMI's sister company.

Strand brings economic modeling, international trade and project management credentials to IMI, the leading market analytics firm for industrial and construction product markets in North America. Since 1987, IMI has helped clients reach their full market potential with data services, dashboards and sales force management tools to target high-potential customers and markets.

“The addition of a staff economist allows us to build stronger market share, wallet share and account potential models for clients,” says IMI President Tom Gale. “I’m excited to increase the market insight and forecasting capability with Bridget’s expertise as we expand the IMI product suite of actionable market analytic tools.”

Before joining IMI, she worked as an Economist for the City and County of Denver, CO, as well as in roles in the finance sector and as a consultant with the World Bank and the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris.

Strand received a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Politics from New York University and her Ph.D. from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a concentration in International Trade and Investment, as well as Development Economics. She has research published in a number of journals.
