Head of UK Sensory Panels, MMR Group

Phiala Mehring

Phiala joined MMR when there were just four people and has seen it grow to be an international company employing over 150 people. In 2007 she was tasked with setting up the Sensory Science Centre at Reading University, and other panels quickly followed. 

She recruits for, trains and manages all of our UK sensory panels, assessing performance and creating training programmes, as well as overseeing all sensory project work. 'Best Practice' is her middle name - she's always refining methods and approaches for MMR's panels across the globe.
