“We are changing our name because we have evolved into a different company. Our combination of research memberships and consulting services gives our clients what they need to make decisions with even more confidence, and we will continue to add more industries to our coverage over time.”

– John Burns, CEO

If you’ve visited our new website over the past week,, you may have noticed some changes. We are now John Burns Research and Consulting (JBREC). While the name is different and our brand refreshed, you can still expect the same trusted research and consulting services we have provided for over 20 years.

John Burns started the company in 2001 to clarify what is going on today so our clients can make the best decisions for their future. Over the years, our team has expanded nationwide—bringing on the industry’s most passionate, articulate, likable, and smart professionals we call PALS.

Our company purpose is “solving today to help you navigate tomorrow,” and our passion is problem solving for our clients so that they can feel confident in all their executive decisions.


We are John Burns Research and Consulting.


Our new look and feel is the next step in the evolution of our brand.

Our new logo represents the idea of rigorous research elevated by second-level thinking. We combine data analysis with problem solving skills to help you make the best decisions. We are an extension of our clients’ teams and ideally part of their success.

Our new online experience was built with each visitor in mind.

We have updated the user experience for both our research members and those who want to follow our complimentary thought leadership with a new user-friendly website and URL:
