It is with great sadness that we share the news of the untimely passing of Margaret Imai-Compton, MLIS, CUG, FMRIA, a distinguished Fellow of the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association and long-standing leader in the qualitative research community in Canada and the US. Imai-Compton served as an experienced group moderator and innovation facilitator for nearly three decades. She was the Principal of Imai-Compton Consulting Inc., and also worked at Research Management Group for the last five years.

Her instructional course “Moderator Training” was rated as the top course taught at the MRIA. An active voice in the marketing research and innovation community, member of the Qualitative Research Consultants Association (QRCA) and the American Marketing Association (AMA), Imai-Compton was constantly sought by her peers across industries for her generous mentorship to all. She lived a full life of mountaineering, devoted to family, work and a rich variety of interests. Born in Japan in 1952, her life ended on the evening of April 12, 2020 at the Princess Margaret Hospital ending a seven-year long battle with ovarian cancer.

Her legacy can be found here. Imai-Compton leaves behind a life of enduring courage and inspiration for all. She was a monthly columnist at the VUE magazine, and you can read one of her many articles on the MRIA blog in memorium. Her legacy of a life led by character and purpose casts resilience and hope for Canada’s research industry. May her soul rest in peace. We urge you to reflect on her contributions and share your favourite memories of her on our social forum.
