• Mystery Shopping your Customer Experience

  • Our Story

    Our Story

    Our Managing Director, David Hopkins, has a long history in the business of doing good business. After co-founding a leisure consulting company called Proleisure LLP in 2008, David saw a real need in the broader market for better customer insight and launched Proinsight in 2014. After six exceptional years helping our clients deliver excellence in their own businesses, we are now a leading specialist provider of mystery shopping, auditing and research programmes for a wide variety of sectors here in the UK.

    Our team

    Our team are as diverse and exciting as our mystery shops and, without blowing their trumpets too much, they’re all awesome. We believe that our team needs to have practical operational experience in business as well as being fantastic, vibrant human beings. This means we really do get the challenges our clients face because we’ve been there and done it ourselves.

    Chloe joined us as an Account Manager in August 2017. Prior to Proinsight, Chloe had worked as National Sales Manager for Parkwood Leisure and has vast experience in the leisure industry. She will be responsible for looking after many of our clients and helping them get the most out of their mystery shopping programmes. Her infectious laugh and quiet wit keep the office staff alive with anticipation.

    Hannah Weekes
    Head of Operations

    Hannah joined us in January 2019 with a history of working in the leisure industry in various leadership roles behind her. She’d met the Proinsight team through these previous roles having used their mystery shopping services and even became a Mystery Shopper of ours too! Hannah runs Proinsight’s day to day operations, working with our Programme Coordinator and Quality Control team. A keen dancer in her youth, but due to injury can’t continue this professionally still to this day can never say ‘”no” to a ‘boogie’ on the dancefloor.’

    Jack King
    Programme Coordinator

    Jack joined Proinsight in November 2021 after working as Team Leader in the Document Services Industry. Since then, he has become integral part of the Pro team, where his constant witty remarks regularly keep morale high!  An avid golfer, you can often find him down his local driving range, perfecting his drive. If not on the golf course, he’ll definitely be the first to get the round in down at the pub!

     

     

     

     

     

    Antonio Buhagiar
    Operations Manager

    Antonio has joined Proinsight straight out of university after studying Business Management at the University of Leicester. He’s a keen football fan and won’t let you forget the year Liverpool won the league. As an avid gym goer you’ll often find him in his spare time working out, but hopefully the attraction of London nightlife doesn’t hinder his gains!
