Rockland Dutton Research & Consulting (RDR&C) was formed in mid-2017 to provide clients with research, insights, analytics and measurement to address business and organizational problems and opportunities. The firm started when the two partners, the husband and wife team of Sarah Dutton and David Rockland, retired from top jobs in the public polling and market research fields. Specifically, Sarah was the Director of Surveys for CBS News where she worked for 18 years.  And, David built and led Ketchum Global Research & Analytics (KGRA) from 2000 to 2017.

RDR&C is a boutique research and consulting business that works with select clients who need best-in-class expertise available to them. The firm is engaged with a wide range of clients including The World Bank Group, Philips, Axis Capital, UNICEF, and The Cattlemen's Beef Board.

Because sometimes client assignments require not only their senior counsel, but also support staff from many levels, they have a symbiotic relationship with KGRA to allow project staffing across all levels, as well as engage a variety of freelance staff when needed. And the company has a Research and Design Associate, Emily Peet, to make sure that not only is the work product the smartest and most robust it can be, but also visually appealing and communicates the findings clearly and succinctly.
