Director, Customer Experience

West Monroe isn’t a start-up consulting firm, but we act like one.  From day one, our people have the opportunity to make a definitive personal impact for their clients and their careers. What does this mean? It means we seek out the best of the best, and then we challenge them to make us better. We celebrate driven professionals who thrive in a collaborative environment.

West Monroe has an immediate opportunity for a seasoned Director within our Customer Experience Practice in our Chicago office.  This role entails significant responsibility in managing the client relationship at the executive levels while providing direction and oversight to project teams.

The Customer Experience Practice is focused on helping clients accelerate to today’s pace of change. We do this by operationalizing customer experience. We craft strategies for a digital world that revolutionize the way our clients do business. Being practitioners, we’ll help clients design new operating models and then actually implement them. The amount of data available today is overwhelming, and we work with clients to navigate the abundance of customer data, using this knowledge to develop key insights and build and design effective CX strategies. Our team will work with Salesforce, as a Platinum Partner, to evolve customer relationships. Together, we’ll provide better insight into customers, employees, and overall business performance to create a customer-centric organization to ultimately differentiate on CX. And we create high-performing contact centers, helping clients excel in the age of the customer and meet the demands of an evolving workforce.
