CX Sherpa*

I am a Customer Experience (CX) Strategist and Certified Customer Experience Professional (CCXP) with many years’ experience implementing CX programs in global multi-cultural organisations. I was Group Vice President at the ABB Group (www.abb.com) responsible for Process Excellence in Customer Care across ABB’s worldwide network from 2012 – 2019. Prior to that I was President of a Joint Venture company in Tokyo, Japan, responsible for B2B sales and service across Asia Pacific.

I am a Founder Member and Ambassador for the DACH region for the European Customer Experience Organization (ECXO).


My particular areas of expertise are Customer Journey Mapping, Voice of Customer Programs (e.g. NPS, CSAT, Customer Effort Score and other media) and Customer Complaint Handling.

I am multilingual, speaking English, French, German and Italian.


A byword for guide or mentor. Sherpas are renowned for their hardiness, expertise and experience.
