Ahad is responsible for leading the vision, development and strategy for the ITWP Group’s suite of digital consumer insights products and B2C / B2B platforms, including the TolunaInfluencers community, which is the world’s largest social voting community – a key component of Toluna’s ability to deliver consumer insights in real-time.
Ahad has been with Toluna since 2012 and under his leadership, Toluna’s digital product suite has become the fastest growing in the market research industry. He successfully launched TolunaInsights and productized the company’s suite of automated solutions, including PowerConcept, PowerPack, and PowerShelf, which have established Toluna as the top organization for market research technology and innovation.
Ahad now leads the marketing, digital product, and respondent teams globally, across all ITWP companies. Prior to joining the company, he held senior leadership roles from start-ups to Fortune 500 companies and holds degrees in Decisions Science and Management Information Systems from George Mason University School of Business.

In this newly expanded role, he is responsible for developing and overseeing ITWP’s financial strategy globally and leads the operations team, to ensure an efficient, yet high-value approach to delivering insights on-demand for the company’s global clients. Camagne has been involved in growing the ITWP business, specifically with the acquisition of KuRunData and the recent onboarding of a global, large scale project management system for the business.
Additionally, and in another new role for the company, Michaël Masset has been appointed as ITWP’s Chief Human Resources Officer. In his role, Masset will bring additional focus on developing a best-in-market corporate culture for ITWP by promoting the company’s corporate values, and shared vision globally. This cohesion, an emphasis on recruiting, hiring, onboarding, retaining top talent, and best practices will further accelerate ITWP’s focus on top-line growth.
Michaël is an economic law graduate from Brussels’ University. He began his career at Ernst & Young in 1998 as a consultant, in 2000, he joined Deloitte & Touch as a manager and in 2002 joined Claeys & Engels as a lawyer.
