Dr Zachary Anesbury

Senior Marketing Scientist

Zachary’s area of expertise is patterns of consumer buying and media consumption behaviour. His research was instrumental in extending the scope of established consumer behaviour laws. Zachary has published in leading marketing journals including the International Journal of Market Research, Journal of Consumer Behaviour and the Journal of Advertising Research. He is currently focusing on how younger consumers buy brands and consume media.

Zachary has conducted research for many sponsors on a local, domestic and international level. The sponsors benefit from the Institute’s core knowledge on how consumers behave via the Laws of Growth and Brand Tracking research projects.
