founder & CEO
As a captain of the team, Nicole has been successfully guiding boobook for over 20 years. Her mission was to deliver excellent service to clients and create an enjoyable environment for her team. Fascinated with numbers and their application, Nicole enjoys helping clients to discover the story behind their data. Always looking for another mountain to climb (both metaphorically and physically speaking), she is a resilient and focused leader.
Fun fact: You’ll probably see Nicole participating in a long-distance marathon.
Known for her no-nonsense mentality and exceptional social skills, Eva has a very positive attitude towards life and work. Her critical thinking, combined with extensive experience in market research and data analysis, brings indispensable value when it comes to finding solutions for our clients. Being a proactive and dynamic individual, she enjoys the most when she’s talking to clients and seeing projects move forward in the right direction.
Fun fact: Eva is the best cyclist in the boobook team.

Extensive projects can get daunting, but Dan tackles challenging projects with great focus and patience. He likes to immerse himself fully in every project from start to finish. For him, the best things about working at boobook are the variety of projects and an excellent environment for developing new expertise. With his calm and positive energy, he helps his colleagues solve tricky issues with ease. To keep things fun and spontaneous, Dan enjoys adding a dose of humour while communicating with the team.

Being incredibly curious and eager to learn, Helen always wants to get all the details of the “why” right until she gets to the bottom of an issue. Her attentive eyes have a great sense for details and small bits in the projects. When talking to a client, she tries hard to understand the problem and how to come up with the best solution. As a cheerful and optimistic person, she often lifts the team spirit with funny anecdotes.
Fun fact: Helen and her husband started collecting glasses from trips around the world as a joke, but over the years they already collected a cupboard full of trinkets!
After years of working as Head of Marketing and Head of Brand and Product Management, Michael swapped ‘the client’ position to becoming a consultant. Today, being on the other side of the research projects, he helps marketing managers and insights experts achieve their objectives using his previous experience as an essential tool to understand the clients on another level.
Fun fact: Michael is an avid photographer and enjoys taking pictures with his digital camera!
Apparently, there is a secret link between plants and nature and applied statistics and research because Milena, just like Nicole, our CEO, comes from the same background: biology. After her academic research, she worked as a sales representative and account manager. Today she’s focused on customer insights and helping businesses understand their customer’s behaviours.
Fun fact: Don’t be surprised if you see Milena on your TV. In her free time, Milena enjoys doing improvised acting and often works as an extra.
