McNair yellowSquares turns 20

MEDIA RELEASE: April 9 2021: In our 20 years’ evolution McNair yellowSquares have learned and grown, innovated, discovered, uncovered and broadened our experience. We have asked questions about health and farming and migrating and government services. We have listened to people in their homes, at workplaces, in schools, on ferries, on the phone, online, in groups and one-on-one. We have reached into remote communities, regional towns, capital cities and into every state and territory. We have analysed and provided data, presented it in graphs, tables, spreadsheets, infographics and dashboards. We are a story of Australia, of growth and change, and needs and policy. We are the voice of Australians with a diversity of interests, beliefs, backgrounds and behaviours. We are a professional research service reaching out to Australians to find out what they think, feel and experience. We are McNair yellowSquares.

The company was first registered and envisaged by Matt Balogh in April 2001 and was joined by Ian McNair in 2003.  We still bear the McNair name, a name synonymous with the first registered research business in Australia. In 2017 we joined forces with yellowSquares, founded in 2003 by Chris Mawn and Gillian Milne. McNair yellowSquares, now led by directors Angela Brooks, Saskia Kirson, Chris Mawn and Gillian Milne, continues to combine tested research methods with innovative technology to enable solutions to every research requirement.  This is combined with quality management that is consistent with the international ISO20252:2019 standard. McNair extend thanks to our clients, our suppliers, colleagues and staff who have provided support throughout the years. In particular, McNair yellowSquares acknowledge the contribution of our company’s founders, Matt Balogh and Ian McNair, and are thankful for their foundation, stewardship and vision.

“It’s people that are being celebrated today, the people we are and the people we survey” says Managing Director, Angela Brooks “It is our vision that McNair yellowSquares will continue to sustain research excellence, embracing the challenges and changes ahead.”
