Singapore – July 4th 2016. Kadence Singapore (, a leading market research consultancy firm in the APAC region, has strengthened its management team in Singapore through the appointment of Phil Steggals as Managing Director and Patrick Young as Insights Director. The company’s ethos is to provide Insights Worth Sharing, based on solid research and presented in an interactive fashion.
