Blog: John Gongos

John Gongos is the President and CEO of Auburn Hills-based Gongos Research. After starting his marketing research career with key positions on both the client and supplier side, John set his sights on creating his own company and formed Gongos and Associates in 1991. He envisioned a company culture that fostered personal growth, intellectual growth, client growth and organizational growth. 

True to his automotive roots, John continued to service automotive manufacturers and suppliers, but implemented a plan for strategic diversification. Following 15 years of steady growth, the company was renamed Gongos Research in 2006, coinciding with the building of its new headquarters that same year.

Today, as an active leader in the company, John continues to develop a management team of accomplished researchers and strategists who are forging the company’s strategic direction, as well as product development, marketing and business strategy. He also leads the company’s efforts to recruit top talent, and helps retain that talent by remaining closely connected to employees at all levels.

John earned his BS at Miami University (OH) and his MBA at the University of Cincinnati
