CIF Research - Who We Are

CIF Research was established in 2012 in London and is the younger branch of the IFF International group.  The IFF International group, combined has over 25 years of experience in the Market Research industry. 

Tom Abele founded the company in 1993 in Germany, but after perceiving the huge and growing demand for telephone research, Tom transformed a small local business in Germany into an International fieldwork agency. 

Today, IFF International operates with branches in Frankfurt (DE), London (UK), Palermo (IT) and conducts close to 300 research projects annually.

Everyone at CIF Research is different, but we all have one thing in common: Our genuine care that we relinquish, for one goal; to achieve excellence.

Our team is young, talented and enthusiastic, with a passionate way of working and a management involvement throughout, inducing confidence and a trusted relationship to our clients.
