(AMS), a leading-edge market research and consulting firm, is pleased to announce two senior promotions in the firm’s Insights for Innovation practice. Carmel Dibner has been named a Principal of AMS, while Patricia Yanes has been promoted to Associate Principal.
Carmel has been instrumental in the development of new capabilities for AMS, including the firm’s expertise in the use of conjoint analysis to evaluate the customer experience, and the application of machine-learning methods to find insights in user-generated content. As a Principal, she will work to refine and deliver these services, and others, to an ever-expanding portfolio of global clients.

She holds an M.B.A. in Marketing and Management from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. in Psychology and Sociology from Cornell University.
Patty’s promotion to Associate Principal recognizes her leadership in client engagements, her deep industry and functional expertise, and her reputation as a mentor to other AMS team members. Since joining AMS as an analyst in 2010, Patty has established herself as a vital resource to clients in industrial products, medical devices, and financial services. Clients also look to her expertise in choice-modeling methods including adaptive choice-based conjoint (ACBC) analysis and maximum-difference scaling (MaxDiff).
