Jonathan WeissVice President, Account Manager
As vice president, Jonathan oversees LRW’s custom research group in Chicago. He works closely with Midwest clients as he delivers impactful insights from both strategic and tactical studies.
Jonathan has been with LRW since 2004 and has headed up the Chicago office since 2010. With more than 15 years of experience in the industry, Jonathan has a wide breadth of research experience, spanning a variety of industries including packaged goods, retail, food services, financial services, hospitality, technology, healthcare/pharma, legal, agriculture and media/entertainment. Prior to joining LRW, Jonathan graduated with high honors from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in economics and he received a MBA in strategy and marketing from the UCLA Anderson School of Management.
When not spending time with his wife and three children, Jonathan can be found reading (mostly books about leadership and behavioral economics), running, coaching (basketball, soccer and baseball), enthusiastically cheering on Chicago sports teams or engaging in inane philosophical discussions about social conundrums and the absurdities of our world. He conducts pro bono work for several non-profits and is a member of the executive board of directors at his children’s school.
