Our Story

The story began in 2007 when Paul Kavanagh and Rune Wennesland met over coffee to discuss setting up Beehive, a market research agency based in London. 

Both felt they could achieve more by branching out on their own, so that’s exactly what they did. And consequently Beehive was created, a specialised market research agency. Ultimately it was achieved by combining complementary expertise and a shared conviction to transform business decision making. 

Our Mission

"To deliver accessible insight that ‘tells a story’ with clear recommendation and action prioritisation enabling informed decision making that can transform your business"
