Frankfurt, January 16, 2024. Barbara Sold joins AGF Videoforschung as a Senior Consultant in the newly created Client Success & Data Consultancy division, which focuses primarily on advising new and existing clients on how to work with AGF data and the analysis options.

Barbara Sold has many years of experience in the research sector, most recently as Senior Research Manager at GGmedia Forschung & Beratung, where she had overall responsibility for analyses based on the AGF panel and advised broadcasters and production companies on research issues.

At the same time, she will work with our experts to develop new forms and aggregates of analysis, always in line with the needs of the market. Having worked together for years, I am also personally delighted to have Barbara Sold on the team; her expertise will take us a big step forward in our customer approach."
