Knoeck rejoins Harris Interactive from TNS with nearly two decades of experience advising and developing clients along with organizing and leading client-centric research teams. He will be responsible for increasing the company's market presence in the healthcare industry with a particular focus on stakeholder research.

Albert brings more than 25 years of experience designing and implementing marketing communications strategies and research for public, corporate and not-for-profit healthcare organizations. She will be responsible for advancing the strategic direction and marketing strategy for the company's healthcare offerings, including Strategic Health Perspectives (SHP), an annual intelligence service that helps clients identify and understand current issues and emerging trends within the healthcare marketplace.

Al Angrisani, President and Chief Executive Officer of Harris Interactive, said, "Matt and Sharon bring a unique set of skills and experience to our Healthcare Group. Their hire reinforces our commitment to promoting our thought leadership in the healthcare industry."

Knoeck commented, "The healthcare industry is undergoing substantial transformation. The organizations that will be successful in this changing landscape must be forward facing, nimble and innovative. I believe that Harris Interactive is such an organization, and I am excited to help shape the company's evolving healthcare practice."

"Organizations serving the healthcare marketplace have a need for insight and market intelligence to drive their business objectives, and Harris Interactive has deep roots in understanding healthcare from the consumer, physician and health care delivery perspective. I am delighted to join the company during this dynamic time for the healthcare industry," said Albert.
