Jamaica National (JN) Group says it is deeply saddened by the passing of well known researcher and pollster Bill Johnson.

A JN release said Johnson provided nearly two decades of service to the group as a consultant researcher and analyst, conducting various surveys on its behalf through his company Johnson Survey Research Limited.

"These services included various customer service surveys and market research as well as surveys into employee sentiment. These efforts provided the leadership and employees of the JN Group, over the years, with key insight into JN's engagement with its various stakeholders to guide the growth and success of the organisation," the release said.

"Up to his death, Johnson remained one of a handful of well-known pollsters in Jamaica whose results proved to be consistently accurate about stakeholder sentiment. This was supported by sound analyses of the data," the release added.

Chief executive officer of the JN Group Earl Jarrett described Johnson as a steadfast social scientist who maintained a reputation for accuracy and integrity.

"His insightful analyses of the findings have been very useful in making important decisions regarding the direction of companies and strategies within the group.

"We are very grateful for the many years of service he gave to us and the growth that we have realised as a result of his work," said Jarrett.
