Cecil "Bud" Phillips, founder of M/A/R/C® Research, passed away yesterday. Forever we will remember his legacy and the footprint he left on the marketing research industry.

Dallas (I-Newswire) January 22, 2014 - Cecil "Bud" Phillips, age 89, founder of M/A/R/C® Research passed away yesterday. Without question Bud was a pioneer and a legend within the market research industry. Not only was he the founder and President of M/A/R/C Research for more than 25 years, he was instrumental in the startup of the advanced research program at the University of Georgia and supporting the Universality of Texas at Arlington.

In 1950, Cecil "Bud" Phillips joined TracyLocke, and began to bring order, credibility and stature to marketing research. By 1965, the research department under Phillips' leadership had expanded beyond the agency's client base to become a national company known as Marketing and Research Counselors - M/A/R/C.

Based on a simple philosophy, "Find out what people want and make it for them," Bud Phillips' pioneering research set the stage for industry innovation and expansion.

"The market research community lost one of its great leaders this week. The impact Bud Phillips had on so many people and the industry can't be measured," said current President and CEO, Merrill Dubrow.

Bud leaves behind his wife Cathy and a legacy of hundreds of outstanding researchers that he helped train and mentor over his lifetime.
