Martin Rabinovitch, Ph.D.

 

Martin founded Walt Disney’s first market research department for feature films after working as a consulting researcher to the U.S.

Surgeon General’s Scientific Committee on Television and Social

Behavior. At Disney, Martin developed his own brand of in-depth focus group research for both major motion pictures and smaller budget independent movies.

Martin opened Quality Focus to serve other high involvement product companies in addition to the entertainment industry. He has been a consultant to a variety of industries including automobiles, fashion, computers, home video, network cable television, and theme parks.

 

Martin has a Ph.D. in Mass Communications from the University of

Iowa. He also was a professor at California State University, Northridge where he served as the Head of Graduate Studies for Radio-TV-Film.
