Michael Ellison is President & CEO of Corporate Insight, Inc., which specializes in competitive intelligence, user experience research and consulting services to the nation’s leading financial, health and philanthropic institutions. The firm was founded over 25 years ago to address the competitive research needs of marketing executives in the financial services space, developing the first Broker Monitor Report in 1995.

In 1996, when financial services firms began to adopt and leverage the Internet as a sales and service channel, Michael joined Corporate Insight to launch e-Monitor, which focuses on the brokerage industry’s use of the Internet as a primary communications vehicle to interact with their clients. Following the success of e-Monitor, the firm began covering the mutual fund, banking, card, annuity, life insurance, and Property &Casualty insurance industries.

As the recognized leader in customer experience research for the financial services industry, in 2015, Corporate Insight launched its Healthcare Monitor service to help health insurers improve their digital capabilities and customer experience.

Prior to joining Corporate Insight, Michael held several positions of increasing responsibilities at financial services firms including CommScan (now Dealogic) and Effron Enterprises (now informa).

Michael is featured frequently as an expert speaker at key industry conferences and engagements while also being recognized by his peers as an innovator in competitive research. Michael holds a bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Finance from Syracuse University.
