New York, NY (February 11, 2013) — Leading global marketing research firm Radius Global Market Research (Radius GMR) announced it has opened offices in Detroit, Chicago and Princeton, NJ, in order to support the unique market research needs of the Automotive, Rx-Pharma, and Financial Services industries.

Efforts in Radius GMR’s new Chicago office will focus on developing custom market research solutions that meet the needs of the Rx-Pharma sector.
