Founded in 1986, The Henne Group (THG) is a San Francisco-based consulting group offering a wide range of research, planning, and communications services to clients from the public and private sectors.  THG specializes in all aspects of study design, survey instrument design, data collection, and analysis.  Grounded in social science and evidence-based practice, we have successfully completed hundreds of quantitative and qualitative research projects for a variety of government agencies, universities, not-for-profit organizations, major pharmaceutical companies, and other businesses.  We have worked in a variety of fields, including public health, healthcare, transportation, the environment, and finance.  Many of our projects are large-scale undertakings with complex and often difficult-to-implement procedures.  

 From 1990 through 2000, THG was a part-owner of Survey Methods Group, a 40-station data collection facility located in San Francisco.  Jeff Henne, THG’s President and CEO, was the managing partner of that facility, overseeing several multi-million dollar, NIH and NIMH government-funded research efforts.

 In 2009, THG established Waller Hall Research (WHR) in Greybull, Wyoming to augment its data collection capacity.  Both THG’s data collection centers in San Francisco (25 stations) and WHR’s data collection center in Greybull (35 stations) are run from the same server so that all data collection activities can be centrally monitored, and interviewing can be effortlessly passed off from one center to another.

Clients have included universities, government agencies, not-for-profit organizations, major pharmaceutical companies, and other businesses.
