who we are

DBM Consultants was established in 1992 by Dhruba Gupta, one of Australia’s leading market researchers. Operating from a small office in South Yarra, the business quickly accumulated clients and two decades later, DBM has become one of the ten largest privately owned market research agencies in Australia. Dhruba continues to drive the business as Managing Director with support from an experienced executive management team.

DBM has been recognised by leading business magazine BRW as among the fastest growing privately held companies in Australia. In a cluttered space where there are more than 300 research firms in Australia, DBM stands out for its work and impressive client list.

With a team of 60 researchers, analysts and support staff backed by an operations team of 400, our success is built on long term partnerships with our clients – many of whom have been with us for more than a decade. Our growth wouldn’t have been possible without our expert and dedicated team and, of course, our clients.

We pride ourselves on our three pillars: excellence, innovation and insights.
